In partnership with a wide range of businesses, community groups , local government staff, young people and job seekers we have been stepping up to the challenge of the pandemic by:
- Providing virtual support to young people both one to one and through facilitated wellbeing sessions.
- Distributing essential goods and food to people who are isolated and vulnerable.
- Launching Coronakindness https://www.leicestershirecares.co.uk/get-help/individuals/coronavirus/coronakindness/ where we will link businesses with a wide range of community groups across the city and county who are delivering vital support.
- Producing self help and education packs for young people and families as well as information briefs. https://www.leicestershirecares.co.uk/get-help/individuals/coronavirus/activities-stay-postive/
We have also contributed to local coordination efforts and sought to share learning ensuring the voice and lived experience of people we work with shapes and drives the agenda.
It is early days and lots of unknowns to come. We will get some things wrong but we are committed to learning , sharing and working in partnership with business, community and government to tackle this crisis head on and we will win.
