Grantham Delivery stage

funded icon
This project was funded on 30 Jul 2020! is providing the volunteer coordination hub in the heart of Grantham and in the surrounding area. This involves receiving requests for assistance from vulnerable isolated clients either directly or via referrals from South Kesteven District Council's (SKDC) Coronavirus hub and matching them to volunteer resources. We receive referrals of all local volunteers from Wellbeing Lincs and SKDC's hub, verify them, and issue ID cards and recognisable conspicuous vehicle signage. We plan and organise shopping and delivery to clients and provide credit for those unable to access their money. Grantham is operated by Elloe C.I.C., the innovation and trading subsidiary of South Lincolnshire Blind Society C.I.O. (charity #1182486), in partnership with the South-West Lincolnshire Primary Care Network (PCN) of sixteen GP practices across Grantham and Sleaford, Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) mental health hub and spoke and neighbourhood teams.

What we'll deliver:

  • Organise services on behalf of vulnerable isolated clients
  • Provide temporary credit for clients unable to access their money
  • Verify, ID, and manage volunteers
  • Manage storage and distribution of bulk essential supplies
  • Provide remote, moderated, emotional support and reassurance
  • Dog walking service for people who need to shield during the pandemic
  • Collection and delivery of vital medicines

Why it's a great idea:

Ensure, so far as possible, that vulnerable isolated people have access to essential supplies and prescriptions and are not deprived due to lack of access to money. Organise volunteers efficiently and provide support and resources for them to operate safely.

Steps to get it done:

  • Provide daily shopping and delivery service
  • Provide remote befriending service
