Coronavirus volunteering policy statement

COVID-19 outbreak: Local tasks will resume from 11th April. We will be adding tasks on a rolling basis; please keep checking the task list page for updates.

On 2021-03-16 the Scottish Government released a timetable for easing the coronavirus restrictions which sets dates for the easing of various restrictions in Scotland. Tasks in the Edinburgh area will resume in April with the first task on 11th April at Granton Castle Walled Garden. Assuming no delays in the timetable we expect to restart tasks outside Edinburgh in mid May.

At present we do not have a full task programme but we hope to add more tasks in the near future.

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.
