Leicestershire's Community Hub

There is also support avaiable from the Leicestershire Community Hub. This community hub brings together a range of help for people who’ve been identified as being most at risk from coronavirus and are isolating at home – and don’t have support from friends or family. This includes help with:

  • Getting medication
  • Getting food
  • Social care

The hub has been set up by the county and district councils across Leicestershire.
