Follow Guidelines:

Primarily, the best way we can tackle Coronovirus is by following the government’s guidelines, which you can find on NHS Inform.

Volunteer:

In addition, there are numerous ways in which you can support the effort to fight Covid-19.

NHS Volunteering:

Community Support Volunteering: https://www.readyscotland.org/coronavirus/helping-in-your-community/

Donate:

Blood donation is a practical way in which you can support the health service to maintain its blood stock for emergencies. Blood Donation is an essential travel during the lockdown and is permitted, simply show police your email which the Transfusion Service will issue you: https://www.scotblood.co.uk/

Support:

This is a great website that brings together a list of local businesses selling gift cards online. This is a brilliant way to support Glasgow’s vibrant small businesses in these challenging times, providing much-needed cash flow in exchange for vouchers which can be redeemed after the lockdown ends: https://www.safeguardgiftcard.com/

Work:

A new service is being launched to match rural businesses with potential employees and volunteers during the response to coronavirus (COVID-19).

The Skills Matching Service (SMS) will ensure that key businesses, such as farms, crofts and organisations which need help to continue to meet their animal welfare obligations, are able to find workers with relevant skills and experience.

It has been set up by Lantra Scotland, a charity funded by the Scottish Government which works to increase the number and diversity of employees in the land-based, aquaculture and environmental conservation sector, and drive their skills development.

To join the skills matching service, visit www.scotland.lantra.co.uk/skills-matching-service. Find out more by contacting Lantra Scotland on 01738 310164 or emailing scotland@lantra.co.uk.
