If you are actively supporting anyone in Ottershaw please also register with RBC for an ID card (and let us know). Instructions are below and are not onerous.
This will NOT compel you to volunteer more than you already are or elsewhere in the borough - unless of course you want to. This is to protect ourselves as well as the people we are helping. In the future you may be required to carry an RBC ID card when out supporting your friends and neighbours.
RBC have also introduced a contingency arrangement for volunteers to be paid for essential shopping when the person being helped has no means of paying you directly. It is not automatic, there is a process, and you will need an RBC ID.
Instructions on how to register for RBC ID: Email email@example.com (and cc Ottershaw2020@gmail.com); with this info: · Name · Address · Name of Community Group volunteering with [i.e.Ottershaw Covid 19 Community Support Group] · A recent personal photograph (head and shoulders only ideally and forward facing) filename of photo should be your name
RBC will validate the request against a list of known volunteers at Voluntary Services North Surrey(VSNS). We supply the names of Ottershaw Volunteers (hence why we need to know you are applying).
At the moment it takes a couple of days to get your ID but it may take longer in the future - so I recommend you to do it sooner rather than later.👍👍
