COVID-19 Volunteers

Thank you to everyone that has responded to the national call out for volunteers.

Because of the amount of people offering their time and help, the national call out has closed for the moment so those volunteers can be placed where they will be able to help and make a difference.

We understand there are still many people who want to help, which we are grateful for. We are taking a look at our local need within Dorset and as the situation changes from week to week we may need willing volunteers as time progresses.

If you are interested in expressing interest in volunteering during COVID-19 please complete the online application form below so we can keep your details if we need to ask you to volunteer. If you prefer to complete a hard copy form, please download here and email to

There’s also a tickbox on the form so you can opt in to share your interest in volunteering with the Community Action Network and Dorset Volunteer Centre. Combined, these organisations cover the Dorset area and are co-ordinating a local network of volunteering across the county.

If you have any other questions please get in touch with the volunteering team by emailing
