Coronavirus community support

We have a caring community in Lichfield District and, as Covid-19 continues to spread, people naturally want to help and support others.

Local voluntary and community groups are there to help people in need, already supporting older members of the community through groups and activities. With the need to self-isolate and because many of these groups and activities rely on very active volunteers who are over 70, most activities have been affected. However, organisations and groups are working to continue to support their members at home, for example through telephone befriending, delivering meals and delivering shopping.

You too can help by registering yourself to offer community support.

Government guidance

The Government has published guidance to help organisations and groups understand how to safely and effectively involve volunteers during the pandemic. Read the guidance.
