Receiving help from volunteers
If you, or friends or family are receiving help from volunteers, please take the following precautions:
- Don’t give money to anyone at the door or over the phone. If you must pay for shopping, then do so when you have received it.
- Don’t give any personal details or banking details to anyone over the phone.
- Don’t let strangers into your home.
During this time, while the vast majority of people's intentions are well meant, as at any time, we should take reasonable precautions to ensure we are not putting ourselves at risk.
