Volunteering as a Steward

This week’s Covid Community Update from South Cambridgeshire District Council includes details about how members of the public can volunteer to be stewards at Covid vaccination centres.

If you would like to register to help at a vaccination centre as a steward (for instance, helping with queue management) please click on the link to register via the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) website. (https://nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk/i-want-to-volunteer/volunteer-roles/steward-volunteer)

All vaccination sites advertise available shifts here and, once you are registered, you will receive alerts via the RVS app, and you will then be able to register for shifts that suit your schedule. This role will require volunteers to commit to at least 2 shifts at a vaccination site each month, with shifts being up to four hours. A DBS is not required for this role, although you will be asked to declare any unspent convictions as part of the application process.

The process to register can be completed in as little as 48 hours, so this is something people can get onboard with fairly quickly and make a tangible difference to the booster programme from as early as next week. Please find out more about the role on the RVS website, where you can also apply.
