The latest information, advice and support on Coronavirus. 

Coronavirus Community Hub

Supporting vulnerable people in your community

We want to make sure that during this difficult time vulnerable people who have to isolate can get the support they need, either from friends or family, volunteers in the community or if they are on their own from the Council.

If you are worried about yourself or someone else who is alone and in isolation, the Community Hub set up by the Council aims to help people and co-ordinate volunteers.

Even if you have to self isolate for short periods due to things such as the Track and Trace initiative, we are able to provide advice and support. Please contact us.

A form below is available for people who want to refer themselves, a family member or someone in the community who needs assistance. You can also fill in a form to volunteer to help the people who need support over the next few weeks.

Please always refer to the latest official government information on social distancing.

This service will prioritise those people who have no one else to help and who are the most vulnerable, for example over the age of 70, have an underlying health condition, families struggling to cope and those people who have received a letter from NHS England stating they are in a priority group.

Opening hours

Monday to Thursday 9 am – 5 pm, Friday 9 am – 4.30 pm.

If you cannot use the online forms please call us on 0116 275 0555 for help and support requests.

COVID-19 Community Pack

We have produced an information pack to support households and the local community during the coronavirus outbreak. The pack contains key contacts, websites and resources you will useful. We recommend sharing this pack within the community where you can to ensure that as many people as possible have the support and knowledge they need at this challenging time.
