Collingham and District Village Care
Collingham and District Village Care cover the 32 villages served by Collingham Medical Centre and supports many in the community with the provision of transport to hospital and medical appointments. This service is funded by passengers with a small grant each year from the County Council. Throughout the pandemic this service has adapted to the needs of the community and provided other services as required.
Village Care also works to enhance the facilities for residents, with the provision and maintenance of benches, planting bulbs etc throughout the area and hope to provide dementia friendly directional signage. The grant would be used specifically to meet the care element of the organisational objectives and will help further existing work, along with other organisations in a collaborative approach to make this an even more inviting and attractive place for everyone to live or visit.
