Coronavirus volunteering policy statement

COVID-19 outbreak Phase 3: We are pleased to announce that our tasks are resuming from October 4th 2020. Please keep checking the task list page for updates.

Some background: On 2020-09-10 the Scottish Government released a further set of updates to the control measures used in Phase 3 of the exit from lockdown. LCV initially cancelled our tasks as a precaution. After reviewing the new guidance, the LCV trustees' view is that LCV, a registered charity, operates "organised outdoor activities" for those over the age of 18 and furthermore provides "voluntary and charitable services". These activities are expressly permitted in the legislation.

LCV believe that we can resume tasks once Scotland enters Phase 3 of the Scottish Government lockdown exit roadmap. This assumes that social distancing measures will be relaxed further once Phase 3 begins. The earliest date on which this can occur is 9th July. As part of the process we have prepared a position statement on safely running LCV tasks during the coronavirus outbreak. In addition we have updated our guidance to volunteers and guidance to task leaders.

The situation is constantly changing and LCV will continue to update our guidance as Government advice changes. We look forward to welcoming you back on task soon.
