How to help

Find out how to help in the fight against coronavirus, including following the latest advice, volunteering and sharing official information with people you know.

Stay at home

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. This includes people of all ages – even if they do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.

People should only leave their home to:

  • shop for basic essentials – only when really needed
  • do one form of exercise a day – such as run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
    for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable
    person
  • travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary.

Spread the word

Help us to save lives by reinforcing the key messages of the coronavirus campaign with your key contacts. In particular, this should include the essential message that everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. This includes people of all ages – even if they do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.

Please use your social media accounts to share only official messages from Government and NHS websites and accounts. There is a lot of misinformation about coronavirus being shared online, which is causing confusion about the virus and how it spreads.

Maintaining wellbeing

It’s more important than ever that people look after their mental health and well-being., particularly if they are worried about the coronavirus and the effects of self-isolation or social distancing. Visit our wellbeing page for more information.

Volunteering and supporting vulnerable people

NHS Volunteer Responders was set up to help the NHS and the care sector during the COVID-19 outbreak to support those people most at risk from the virus to stay well.

A huge thanks to anyone from LLR who has joined the scheme. There was a fantastic response with over 750,000 people nationally signing-up to volunteer for tasks such as delivering food and medications, transporting patients to appointments, transporting NHS equipment and check-in and chats.

Under the scheme, GPs, hospital doctors, nurses, NHS 111 and community pharmacists, those working in local authorities and other professionals, will be able to refer people in to NHS Volunteer Responders and be confident that they have been matched with a reliable, named volunteer.

If you, or someone you know, needs support please do ask a health/care staff about referring you to the scheme. We are also encouraging our GPs and other health care professionals to make full use of the scheme.
