NHS Volunteer Responders are calling for people in to step forward and volunteer to help deliver the COVID-19 vaccination programme to millions across the country. We still have a huge task ahead of us and are inviting you to join our army of volunteers to help get this job done.
Over the summer, more vaccination services will be set up to enable the NHS to vaccinate as many people as possible. We are recruiting for Vaccination Steward Volunteers in certain areas to help the NHS with this important task.
Stewards will be a vital part of the team working in vaccination services. They will guide people on site, to make sure the vaccination process runs as safely and efficiently as possible. They will help ensure social distancing and identify people who need additional support.
If you would like to volunteer or would like to find out more information please head to the website
The nature of volunteering with NHS Volunteer Responders is app-based and very flexible, and therefore volunteers must register themselves as Steward Volunteers, which can be done here: https://nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk/i-want-to-volunteer
Once registered, volunteers are prompted to download the GoodSAM app, where they can see upcoming Stewarding shifts at vaccination sites in their area, and they can simply sign themselves up for as many shifts as they would like, choosing the times and locations that work best for them.
Volunteering can support your own wellbeing with proven benefits to both mental and physical health.
