Coronavirus - Groups supporting the community

Groups Supporting The Community

We're pairing our food stores and pharmacies with local community groups supporting vulnerable people.

We're working with the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum Communities and Volunteer Co-ordination Cell, which is co-ordinating the voluntary effort county-wide in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

With the Forum’s help, we're linking each of our food stores and pharmacies to a community group which can pick up essential groceries or prescriptions and take them to isolated people in the area.

Members of the group will be given a pass to enable them to pick up essential groceries like milk, bread, butter, pasta, toilet roll and paracetamol from food stores (subject to availability) and prescriptions and medical supplies from pharmacies.


We've listed the groups we’ve identified already below ⬇


From a local group?

We’re still working on this list with the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum, so if you can’t see your local area on here, but are aware of a group that can help, please get in touch with our Community team on (01522) 544632 Monday - Friday 9am - 3pm or email community@lincolnshire.coop.

Need help?

If you need support, please get in touch with your local group or contact the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum Communities and Volunteer Co-ordination Cell on (01522) 787034 or email CEC_CVC@lincoln.fire-uk.org.

New voucher scheme to help people isolating

We're now selling £20 vouchers over the phone - they can be used by volunteers, friends or family to pay for the shopping of those who are isolating.

The vouchers are ordered over the phone. They are then sent out by recorded first class post and delivered to a chosen address. They can then be used as payment in Lincolnshire Co-op food stores. 

So, if someone's isolating and needs essentials picked up, they can buy a voucher to give or send to a friend, family member or volunteer to spend on shopping on their behalf.

Find out more here.
