Before applying to volunteer with us in the UK, you must read and understand the  United Kingdom COVID Traffic Light System. Please note that these guidelines are subject to change at any time.


The UK is currently operating a “Traffic Light” system, whereby all countries around the world are grouped into 3 categories.  Red, Amber, and Green. You will need to check which category applies to your country, and then follow the advice given below.

You do not need to take a COVID-19 test or quarantine on arrival in England if you are travelling within the UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man and have not visited any other countries in the last 10 days. Please skip to the bottom of this page.
