This is an opportunity for you to volunteer across the city and in local neighbourhoods supporting the COVID-19 vaccination sites, gain new skills, make new friends and be part of the incredible Manchester COVID-19 journey.
Since the start of the pandemic, hundreds of our students have volunteered in a variety of ways to support the global response to COVID-19. Not just in Manchester, but across the world and as far afield as Saudi Arabia, you have demonstrated that no matter where you’re studying, you can make a real impact as part of our University community.
Want to get involved?
To support the increase in demand for COVID-19 vaccinations and booster jabs, we are in need of more volunteer marshals at sites across the city. The role includes tasks such as:
- Directing patients around vaccination delivery sites, directing to pods, directing to waiting areas, directing to exit
- Supporting traffic flow in car parks
- Handing out masks at entrances
We are also looking for volunteers to support with community engagement. Manchester is hugely diverse and over 100 languages are spoken across the City. We especially need volunteers who can speak other languages so we can offer advice and support to people who otherwise might not be able to access it.
