Under the umbrella of The Lea Parish Council and in conjunction with Lea Residents Association, Nourse Charity, and the Community Hub, a support group has been set up to offer practical help in the village during this unprecedented time.
We will be aiming to help on two levels – firstly, the purely practical things that you might find yourself struggling with either due to self-isolation or because you can no longer get out due to changes in transport arrangements.
We understand that for many, this is a concerning time and especially difficult if you’re housebound, and so our second way of helping is to offer an ear if you just need someone to chat to. We are committed to ensuring that no one needs to feel alone right now. Get in touch and let us know you’d like to talk. Remember – it’s perfectly ok to not be ok about everything!

The Lea Community Voluntary Support Group is being run by your friends and neighbours. Everyone involved will bring a different skill or service to the project. We will operate at all times to ensure your safety is paramount and everything we see and hear will be treated with confidence. We ask that you understand that we are volunteers trying to help our neighbours and friends and that we are not a statutory body.
We look forward to helping you and wish you well as we move through these troubling times together as a community that cares.
