Community Volunteer Sign Up

Communities 1st are currently working with a range of voluntary and statutory partners across Hertfordshire, West Essex, Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes, to help respond to the COVID-19 situation. 

If you are a low-risk, healthy person, you can help. Whether you help medical staff in a vaccination centre, deliver a vulnerable person’s shopping, or just give someone a friendly phone call, you will be making a huge difference. 

We are currently experiencing high numbers of applications, so please bear with us. We aim to process volunteer applications within 10 days. Rest assured that every volunteer is very much needed!  

Sign up using the form below.


If you can upload an identification evidence copy now that would be helpful.

We ask that you upload a clear photo or scan of valid PHOTOGRAPHIC ID (e.g. passport or driving license)
That you upload a photo of yourself holding up the same valid PHOTOGRAPHIC ID (e.g. passport or driving license)
