The NHS drove for volunteers have reached their target just two days after it was extended, the Royal Voluntary Service announced today.
The recruitment drive has been such an overwhelming success that it has now been temporarily paused to allow the charity to process the torrent of applicants and work with the NHS to get the volunteer army up and running.
Those who registered will be helping the health service perform ‘vital roles’ that will allow people to comply with strict government advice on self isolation and social distancing.
Community response volunteers will collect and deliver shopping, medication or ‘other essential supplies’ for people under isolation.
