Informal volunteering guide - Consider these guidelines before you help your neighbour, or an elderly person or take part in other informal volunteering activities in your community:

 

Wanting to help in a crisis is a natural reaction. You might already be helping your neighbour by taking them groceries. Others form groups on social media, or convene informal community groups, to come together to support vulnerable members within communities. These types of voluntary work are known as ‘informal volunteering’. Volunteering Victoria (2020).

  • For volunteers: Consider these guidelines before you help your neighbour, or an elderly person or take part in other informal volunteering activities in your community. Your safety is your number one priority, do not put yourself at risk. If you are feeling sick or un-well, do not help others. By protecting yourself, you are already supporting your community by reducing the spread. Follow government guidelines for infection control around hand washing and social distancing. For more information on these guidelines, visit the Victorian Government’s physical distancing page
