COVID-19 and CITA volunteers and charities: Updated Statement – 27/07/2020

It is important that, whilst preparing for or during an assignment, both volunteers and charities rigorously adhere to current government guidelines and restrictions designed to limit the spread of the virus.

These can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Where an assignment cannot be carried out safely according to these guidelines and restrictions then it should be delayed until such time that it can. Both volunteers and charities must each feel comfortable that adequate measures for their safety have been put in place before any assignment should proceed.

CITA cannot be held liable for the consequences of any failure, either by a charity or by a volunteer, to follow safe practice as required by any government guidelines or restrictions in force at the time of the assignment.
