Whether it's by giving practical or emotional support, there are lots of ways you can help.

There has been an exceptional response to the Scotland Cares national volunteering campaign. As a result, the recruitment of new volunteers is currently paused. The campaign may be restarted if more volunteers are needed in the future.

Many thousands of people have signed up to volunteer through Scotland Cares, in addition to those who were already doing fantastic work as volunteers across Scotland. If you have signed up, you may not be needed immediately. However, volunteers will continue to be critical in our efforts to support and rebuild our communities and you may be called on to help over the weeks and months to come.

Remember though you can still help friends, family and neighbours by offering support in lots of different ways, and there may still be some local and online volunteering opportunities available in your area on the Volunteer Scotland website. You can check our advice page on how to do this safely.

You can find out about some of the volunteering stories at Radio V, a weekly 20 minute programme from Volunteer Scotland.
