Coronavirus member support group volunteers

Given the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus, we are providing generic guidance for members across all sectors. See below our new Community member support group volunteer guide.

A helping hand through hard times

Times are tough for our members across the UK, with COVID-19 causing confusion and uncertainty, many of the most vulnerable in society are stuck at home with nobody to help them out. We knew we had to do something, so we put our heads together and came up with an idea.

We have a proud history of taking trade unionism out of the workplace and into the local community, the idea that looking out for one another even after your shift ends is an important part of what it means to be a Community member.

Our community member support group is a shining example of what happens when we put our principle of helping others who cannot help themselves into action. As a volunteer you will be the helping hand that reaches across the country and ensures that nobody is without support.

This guidance booklet outlines a few basic considerations regarding the volunteer work, we ask that you carefully read and follow the advice and guidance this booklet offers.

This is going to be a huge team effort, but we’re up for the challenge. Let’s get out there and make a positive difference for our members and their loved ones.

Read the booklet below, and email volunteer@community-tu.org if you have any questions.
