The government has introduced measures to make volunteering much easier for all of us. To support this, we’ve developed some advice on how to stay safe while volunteering.
Action Fraud and Trading Standards have received reports of fraudsters posing as charity volunteers offering to help with shopping, offering fake virus testing, or claiming to be raising funds for charity.
