Missing Shepper checks? These are 3 things you can do instead to help with coronavirus efforts.

To follow the government’s new social distancing rules, we’ve had to pause all of our jobs for the meantime (don’t worry, we’ll be back before you know it). For all those Shepherds who want to keep busy – and do some good – we’ve gathered a list of some things you can do to help out in these times of need. 

1. Help the NHS deal with increased demand

The NHS is vital to our country’s health and they need plenty of people like you to help them out. Tackling the coronavirus situation isn’t easy, so why not sign up and see how you can help. The great part is that the kind of tasks they need are really varied – they need volunteers to do everything from deliver supplies to simply check in and chat on the phone to someone at risk of loneliness.

2. Offer help and support to vulnerable people

You can help support the most vulnerable people right now by joining the National Care Force. You don’t have to be a carer or healthcare worker as they need all sorts of people to simply lend a hand when they can. Their tasks range from covering rota gaps (healthcare workers only), to fetching food for people in self-isolation.

3. Sign up as a British Red Cross volunteer

Help your community get by and back on track by volunteering with the British Red Cross. You won’t need any special skills, just the willingness to help out with coronavirus efforts. They need people to support others with simple acts of kindness, share public health messages and safely help the most vulnerable people near you.

Remember that whatever you do, please be safe and follow the latest government advice and restrictions.
