If you are looking to support members of the community who are vulnerable and self-isolating, the advice is as follows:

  • Voluntary Centre Services runs an accredited Volunteer Centre in Lincoln which can support with volunteering enquiries, email, call 01522 551 683 or visit  
  • For individuals who want to volunteer, please contact either the British Red Cross, Age UK, your local Town or Parish Council or Community Emergency Planning Group or other local charity to find out how you can get involved
  • For people who have set up a new group (Facebook or through other methods) – the most effective thing to do is to coordinate your activity through either your local Town or Parish Council, local community hub or another local charity (such as British Red Cross, Age UK etc.)
  • By working with your local Parish Council or existing group (mentioned above), the coordination of the support will be more effective within your community which can help reduce the risk to your volunteers and to local residents (existing bodies will have insurance and protocols in place already)
