Below is information on free training courses you can access as a volunteer or potential volunteer:

Volunteer Essex:

Free Red Cross online training for volunteers who are responding to Covid-19

The British Red Cross has made available a free short online training course for volunteers in charities and community groups who are responding to Covid-19, such as shopping volunteers. The course takes under 30 minutes to complete and includes a short quiz at the end. Community groups and charities may like to use this as part of their training for their volunteers. To get the best out of this course, we would recommend that it is used as part of a safer recruitment and induction process.
