Across the areas covered by the Diocese of Leeds there are a mixture of different responses by the local councils and community organisations to provide help to those who have no family nearby, and most are asking people to sign up to volunteer (if they are healthy and low-risk). Tasks might vary from offering practical support for vulnerable people (such as shopping deliveries, preparing meals, making check-in phone calls) or signing up as an informal volunteer to help within their own neighbourhood in more general ways.
