Health and Social Care Professionals

Are you a health and social care professional looking to refer someone to our taskforce?

Please click on the button below to complete the form with details of the person requiring assistance and we will get back to you shortly. It is good if you can give us as much detail on the task* as possible and before you begin please familiarise yourself with our Terms of Service.

We will send a request out to the volunteers close to the person requiring assistance and for this reason providing a postcode is essential as where possible we try to assign a volunteer from the locality. When the volunteer replies and offers to assist we will then coordinate times that suits.

The volunteer will not be provided with the phone number of the individual, and we will offer support for this. All our volunteers carry electronic identification or a letter from us to verify their identity, and have been checked and verified by us and Yoti. Each and every one of our volunteers also receives training and guidance on their role.

So please get in touch and we will see what we can do. If you have any more general questions about the service you can contact us at or by calling 0131 561 8309 or 07958 540 438.

* Please note that we are unable to cover the cost of shopping and our Community Taskforce Volunteers must be provided with cash to cover the goods requested.
Volunteer Edinburgh are working with Yoti to provide digital identification for our volunteers. You can find out more about this collaboration and our new electronic volunteer identification here.
