Charnwood Community Action was launched at the start of the coronavirus pandemic to help support, advise and guide the local community during the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign was launched in partnership with John Storer Charnwood and other voluntary sector organisations in the borough.

The Council will also be working with County Council on the co-ordinated efforts to help vulnerable residents in Leicestershire.

Need help and support?

If you or someone you know needs a food parcel, a befriending call to check on how they are or requires help with accessing other services then please let us know through the John Storer website or by calling 01509 631750 (people are encouraged to use the online services in the first instance to help with the high volume of calls).

Let us know if you need help and support

Volunteer in your local community

Volunteers and voluntary groups already helping other people are encouraged to register with John Storer which can provide specific advice and guidance needed to ensure everyone’s safety.

Although everyone's efforts are appreciated, the Council would only encourage people to volunteer as long as they are fit to do so.
