JOIN OUR COMMUNITY & HELP THOSE IN NEED
Thanks for choosing to join the Bike Shed Community Response Volunteer Riders – a free volunteer service providing delivery and community services to people in need during the Covid-19 crisis, run by Bike Shed Motorcycle Club as part of Team Rubicon UK’s “Op React”
RESTRICTING NEW APPLICATIONS – FROM THE END OF TODAY (Fri 15th May)
We now have over 1,000 riders on the app, but we still have a backlog of applications to clear, as people are joining faster than we can activate them, especially in London, through the Midlands and up to Manchester.
To clear the backlog, and help balance our volunteers across the UK, we are now limiting new applications from today, to volunteers in these areas:
The South West – South and West of Bristol
East Anglia – Cambridge and North
The North East – North of Skegness up to Hull and beyond
The Far North – North of Lancaster across to York and to the borders.
All of Wales
All of Scotland
Or anyone with a DBS check
Sorry if you are outside these areas, but we really do need to clear the backlog or more of you will stay disappointed.
When the backlog is cleared we will review and may re-open the applications UK wide.
THE GOPHR MOBILE APP
We are using a courier company app called Gophr to manage volunteer tasks.
PLEASE DO NOT JUST DOWNLOAD THE GOPHR WORK APP AND SIGN-UP:
Gophr is a commercial mobile application, so we have added extra steps for use by Volunteers on a WebForm, plus, we have created A SIGN-ON GUIDE to show you how to skip the commercial questions when you sign-up.
You will need:
1. THE VOLUNTEER ONLINE FORM
2. THE GOPHR WORK MOBILE APP
3. THE GOPHR VOLUNTEER SIGN-ON GUIDE
WHAT INFO & DOCUMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
MOT if applicable.
WHAT DOCUMENTS & INFO ARE NOT REQUIRED?
We do not require commercial insurance, public liability insurance, your bank details or NI number, etc. however, the Gophr Work app will ask you for these documents.
To show you how to skip these questions on the Gophr Work Mobile App sign-up we have created an Online Guide showing the whole process. Please read this in full when you sign-on to the App (see below).
Tip: Using two screens might help.
NOTE: VOLUNTEERING IS AT YOUR OWN RISK
We assume that everyone who volunteers is aware this work may expose them to others who might have Covid-19, so if you are personally at risk, or concerned for others in your family, please don’t volunteer, or, take appropriate precautions in which tasks you accept or refuse.
