What is the Volunteer Passport?

  • Helping your local community in Northamptonshire and providing vital health and social care support for older residents
  • Volunteers trained and accredited to the same standard through e-Learning for Healthcare
  • Simplifying volunteer sharing across multiple health and social care organisations within Northamptonshire

The Volunteer Passport will provide vital support for the elderly and isolated in our community.  This an integrated cloud-based platform simplifying volunteer sharing across multiple Health and Social Care Service Providers. It aims to help more people to get involved in volunteering, whilst providing a platform for Service Providers to recruit and support their volunteers in Northamptonshire. The Volunteer Passport objectives are to extend the scale of befriending for persons experiencing social isolation because of Covid-19 shielding and lock-down.

The Volunteer Passport will allow volunteers to set up a profile, complete mandatory training, upload certification, and other required documentation forming a ‘Passport’. This can then be used to apply and book volunteering sessions across the county and help volunteers to support their local community.
