Volunteer and Help Scheme

City of York Council are working with the many kind-hearted volunteers and with the established voluntary sector to recruit, train and deploy volunteers to support the most vulnerable in the city who do not have access to any help.

Residents who would like help and volunteer are being asked to sign up to or call 01904 551550, or go to The Council will ask for details of their skills and capacity, match them to an existing voluntary group or train them, coordinating with city groups and council requirements, managing them to deliver support where it is needed.

Those vulnerable residents who do not currently have any access to support, but who need help because of impact of COVID-19, are asked to email our Community Support Coordinators at or call 01904 551550 for assistance.

As the health and safety of our residents is our priority, this structured and safe approach to volunteering is to ensure people get the support they need in a co-ordinated and safe way.
