Safeguarding Adults Through the Coronavirus Pandemic

This document is aimed at volunteers during the Coronavirus emergency performing the roles such as delivering shopping, prescriptions and telephone befrienders. It is not intended as a substitution for full training for carers, personal assistants and others working with vulnerable adults on a daily basis.

This document may only be used in terms of awareness whilst we are in the Covid-19 emergency and should not be used once this is over as 3VA and the East Sussex Training team offer comprehensive safeguarding training for all staff and volunteers who support East Sussex County Council residents.


3VA Guide: Volunteering safely during the Covid-19 pandemic

Volunteering to help others is crucial in the response to coronavirus, but it is essential that it is done safely, both for your health and the health of others. Check out 3VA’s guide, which includes information about who and when you can volunteer, PPE, delivering food and other goods, accessing and handling cash, safeguarding and reporting concerns and more.
