Caring for Volunteers - A Psychosocial Support Toolkit

The role of volunteers in emergencies is increasingly complex. In the emergency environment, staff and volunteers are exposed to trauma, loss and devastation, injury and even death.

It is of course difficult to prepare for every type of event and to include every single volunteer. But it is possible to be prepared, both for supporting the well-being of staff and volunteers, as well as for the many other aspects of disaster response.

Remote Psychological First Aid during the COVID-19 Outbreak

Psychological first aid (PFA) is a method of helping people in distress so they feel calm and supported to cope better with their challenges. It is a way of assisting someone to manage their situation and make informed decisions. The basis of psychological first aid is caring about the person in distress and showing empathy. It involves paying attention to reactions, active listening and, if needed, practical assistance, such as problem solving, help to access basic needs or referring to further options for assistance.

COVID-19: How to include marginalized and vulnerable people in risk communication and community engagement

Women, the elderly, adolescents, youth, and children, persons with disabilities, indigenous populations, refugees, migrants, and minorities experience the highest degree of socio-economic marginalization. Marginalized people become even more vulnerable in emergencies.

By understanding these issues, we can support the capacity of vulnerable populations in emergencies. We can give them priority assistance, and engage them in decision-making processes for response, recovery, preparedness, and risk reduction.
