SAFETY GUIDELINES

Invisible Hands makes sure that it abides by the idea of ‘contactless’ help. It is important to keep a safe space between volunteers and clients, so members of the group follow the Safety Guidelines adopted in order to keep direct contact to a minimum. Volunteers not only wear safety gear, such as masks and gloves but also deposit the items delivered behind the residents’ doors. Volunteers are encouraged not to accept cash and to be refunded by electronic payment such as Revolut.
