The Covid 19 emergency
All of us at IVS are home-working, messages can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and mail sent to our office can only be collected infrequently.
Our current priority is looking after our volunteers who cannot safely leave their placements. Our usual programmes of short and medium-term placements in Britain and abroad are being prepared for later in 2020. SCI placements have resumed for projects commencing from 1 July 2020, but applicants are asked to confirm with the project where they have been placed, four weeks before the project starts, that there are no local or national regulations in force which prevent the project taking place, and their attendance. If clearance given, only at that stage should volunteers seek any visas, book tickets required to get them to that project and pay any outstanding registration fees.
We are doing all we can to survive this crisis, we hope you stay well and stay safe. Thank you for continuing to support us.
