Team Leominster

Leominster Town Council joined up with charities, Herefordshire Council and the local Covid-19 volunteer group, to co-ordinate the provision of shopping, medication collection, welfare phone calls and dog walking to vulnerable residents.  Team Leominster put agreements in place so that partners could all use the same database, to enable a swift response to requests for support from residents in the town.

 

This joint work enabled partners to have a greater understanding of vulnerable groups in the community and increased awareness of informal local support networks, operating to support formal services in non-crisis times.  Another win was the effective communication and collaboration between local Team Leominster partners and the countywide Talk Community Covid response.
