Community Support Schemes

There are a number of community support schemes in place across North West Leicestershire and we've being working to co-ordinate with them.

The schemes use local volunteers to help people who need assistance with things like shopping, offering friendly chats by phone call, and collecting medication. 

Many groups within the district are now offering support for people who are self-isolating or otherwise affected by coronavirus.

Lots of these groups are willing to be contacted directly:
