An interactive digital map has been created by City of Lincoln Council to show community help resources for those self-isolating across the city.
Available to view on the council’s website, the map includes Covid-19 neighbourhood support services and their contact details, Lincolnshire Co-op stores operating community delivery services, foodbanks and more.
Additional groups can also be added to the map by contacting the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum Communities and Volunteer Co-ordination Cell on 01522 787034 or emailing CEC_CVC@lincoln.fire-uk.org
People interested in volunteering can also use this tool to find community projects in their area they interested in supporting.
Paul Carrick, Neighbourhood Manager, said: “We’ve received many calls through our community help line of people needing help but who are unsure of where to go, and individuals who want to help but are unaware of what support is currently on offer and how to get involved.
“The interactive map is a visual representation of the community help resources across the city available to anyone self-isolating, and provides contact details for those needing or offering help at the difficult time.”
This is the latest initiative devised by City of Lincoln Council as part of their coronavirus response. If anyone is in need or help or advice and are unsure of who to contact, the community help line is staffed 8am-4pm Monday to Friday and can be reach on 01522 873461/873374.
