Local charity Leicestershire Cares have been as busy as ever the last few weeks as they continue their excellent work in the community.

They have been working with local charities and organisations to get essential food packages to young people, as well as handing out vital information packs on the coronavirus along with daily exercise, yoga and activity packs.

Furthermore they’ve developed an offline Coronavirus info and activity pack to help those who don’t have unlimited access to the internet. The pack includes key information and activities to help keep healthy, positive and active in lockdown. It also includes activities for parents to use with their children in the home. If you have friends or relatives who would find this useful, you can download it HERE.

Additionally, if you’re currently in the midst of home schooling then you can make use of the Leicestershire Cares Educational Resources. Head over to the section on the Leicestershire Cares website for lots of guidance and tips to help you along the way.

Last month Leicestershire Cares also launched their #TogetherWeCare initiative and during that time they received over 100 nominations from either an organisation, councillor or individual.

The new initiative was launched to give a special recognition for all the unsung heroes who are providing support in the communities of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland during the current coronavirus crisis.
The initiative is still running, so if you would like to nominate an individual or organisation please see the nomination process below. They could be a community worker or volunteer, friendly shop assistant, a group or organisation, member of one of our emergency services, a NHS hero or a neighbour who helps out.

Nomination process:

  • Name
  • Email address
  • Why you are nominating them?
  • A photo – which we will then be uploaded on the #TogetherWeCare webpage.

Please send all submissions to: [email protected]
