There’s lots of different ways you can help with the community response to the pandemic:
Become a Covid Champion
This involves attending an online or phone training session to learn more about the virus and how we can stop it spreading. Then you spread the word amongst your community and friends in whatever way you like.
With optional regular check-in sessions to get all the latest info, this is a really great way to help keep your community safe. More info here.

Volunteer to help our Schools Rapid Testing Programme
We have twice been asked to help out with initial Lateral Flow Testing at Calderdale College, who have 4000 students to process – a mammoth task! There are a range of roles for volunteers , including observing students self-administering the tests, usually for a 1-2 week period. This may arise again at future beginnings of term, and we will post the opporunity here.
Volunteer to help your neighbours with shopping or dog walking or other tasks. Firstly try contacting your local mutual aid/covid support group.
There are lots in Calderdale – click here for details.
If there isn’t one in your area you can offer to help via the central volunteering hub
Or why not get together with a couple of neighbours and set one up? We can help.
