Story

The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting all of our lives and while we make sense of this new reality, our NHS is facing extreme pressure.

At this difficult time for us all, were determined to do everything we can to support the remarkable staff at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust who are leading the fight on the frontline in our community hospitals, mental health and learning disability units and in the community. In addition to the physical health implications of COVID-19, many of our patients and service users also have mental health or learning disability needs which are adversely affected by the fear, anxiety and uncertainty caused by coronavirus.

Weve set up this special relief fund to provide emergency funds to support our staff at this incredibly difficult time and to provide additional resources for patients currently in our care.

Your donation will help us to provide:

- Dedicated Wobble Rooms for when staff and volunteers need to take a break away from their workplace if they are feeling stressed, upset or unable to carry on. The rooms will be stocked with relaxation and mindfulness resources to help them to cope with the extraordinary demands they are facing each day

- Free hot drinks, bottled cold drinks and nutritious snacks

-Hand creams and body creams for staff who are washing their hands frequently and wearing personal protective clothing for long periods of time

-Single use activities for patients in our care to reduce the risk of spreading infection, whilst providing a way to help manage their increased anxiety

Please give what you can to help us our staff to fight coronavirus. We would love you to leave your own personal message of support for your local NHS. We will read them all and know that you care as much for us as we do for you and your family. It means so much to us to have your support.

Thank you
