Looking after ourselves, and each other

During this difficult and challenging time it’s important that we all look after ourselves and
each other.
The most important thing is to follow national guidelines to help stop the spread of coronavirus:

  • Stay at home unless absolutely necessary
  • Stay 2 metres apart from others when you do have to go out
  • Do not meet others outside your household, even family and friends

New hotline for Leeds – 0113 3781877

Anyone unable to leave their home because of coronavirus, and worried because they don’t have family or friends who can help, can ring our new dedicated hotline: 0113 3781877

We know some people are alone and will need help from their local communities to get through. If you find yourself in this situation, wondering how to get groceries and other essentials, then please call 0113 3781877 and we will match you with volunteers who live near you and can help.

Can you offer help and support? Tell VAL

We’re partnering with Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL) to co-ordinate local volunteering to help those who get in touch with the hotline.  Volunteers can sign up to offer practical support such as shopping deliveries, preparing meals, dog walking, making check-in phone calls

If you are well and able to volunteer, visit
