How to Stay safe if a volunteer is helping you

From the Government website:

The below are recommendations you should follow when a volunteer is helping you, especially if the volunteer is unknown to you.

If a volunteer is helping you while you stay at home:

  • do not give them your credit or debit card numbers or other financial information
  • ask for ID if someone you do not know calls at your home
  • only share your phone number or address if you need to
  • only give your information on a need-to-know basis
  • do not let them pressure you into giving information

Remember that volunteers should not enter your home, unless it is absolutely necessary.

If you have serious concerns about the behaviour of someone who is helping you, report this to the police.
