How to volunteer in Leicester
During this time, you may feel that you would like to do more to support your local community. DMU Local is working with Voluntary Action Leicestershire (VAL) which is co-ordinating Leicester City Council’s citywide aid response to the coronavirus pandemic.
DMU Local will match staff and students to help with tasks that are needed – such as shopping, dog walking, collecting prescriptions or making friendly phone calls to check in on elderly or vulnerable people.
Anyone wishing to volunteer are asked to complete a simple online form, which will help co-ordinators allocate suitable tasks to each volunteer. The health and safety of volunteers, and of those who could be in contact with them, will be of paramount importance to the scheme’s organisers.
