Over the next few days, weeks and months we are going to need to support each other in a way we have never needed to before.

During this time the Ullesthorpe website will try to act as a useful source of information for people.

There is now a CORONAVIRUS section of the website.  Click on CORONAVIRUS at the top of this page to reach the relevant pages.

Volunteer card/Voucher scheme

You may already be aware, but ASDA, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and M&S now offer a volunteer card/voucher scheme. These can be purchased online by residents who are self-isolating and given to their family, friends or volunteers who are helping them with shopping. These are available to purchase online so won’t be an option for all of our residents. However, it’s a good way to safeguard both residents and volunteers where possible as these are cashless transactions and avoid the need to share bank cards/details etc. More details can be found on the supermarket websites:
