Grampian Coronavirus Assistance Hub

National Standards for Community Engagement



To those of you who have volunteered either through the Grampian Coronavirus Assistance Hub or your local community groups and organisations, you are more appreciated than you will ever know. Your efforts have been outstanding and the support you have given to those in need has demonstrated what being human is all about: treating others as you would wish to be treated yourself. To those of you who have volunteered but not yet been called upon, please don't be despondent; volunteering is needed all year round by many groups and people. We hope that you would consider volunteering in 'normal' times as well as during national emergencies, so if you'd like to hear more about volunteering opportunities, please email us to register your interest: You can also visit our volunteering webpage which can be found by clicking here.
