Round Rutland is closing

From: Nicola Brown

Delivery Officer ‑ Round Rutland

I am not sure if you know about us, but if you don’t, we are called Round Rutland, and previously we have left leaflets around the villages offering our services over the years.

Our service is to offer support to vulnerable and elderly people by visiting them, identifying their needs and signposting/referring them to the relevant organisation. We’ve enabled people to live independently for longer in their homes by finding the right support, from little things such as getting grab rails fitted to applying for funding for care and getting them out into the community on trips and days out etc. the help we have provided over the years has been varied dependent on the individual’s needs. We have also helped to set up Good Neighbour Schemes in the county (this has now been taken over by the Rural Community Council who are still in operation).
Unfortunately, after 10 years, our funding has come to an end and on February 14th, we will be holding our last event; A kind of hand over so that everybody and anybody who needs help, may need help in the future or knows people who may need support, can meet the organisations we have worked with and find out more about them.
It also gives people who know us the chance to say goodbye as we end our project in March.
Please find attached a flyer about the event. Its a drop-in from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and there will be tea and cakes for anyone that comes.
I hope I haven’t left it too late to send this, as we had the flyers sent quite late. Please let me know if I am too late so that if I need to come to the village and deliver some leaflets, I can plan it in.
Also, we have planned for a couple of small coaches/mini buses to come into Caldecott, Lyddington, Seaton, Morcott, Barrowden, South Luffenham, Edith Weston, Ryhall, Great Casterton, Empingham, Exton, Cottesmore & Langham for anyone that wants to go that doesn’t have their own transport or means of getting there, but places are limited. If they can ring our office number on 01572 335101 and leave their details. Because of the limited availability, we have to prioritise and we need to know asap.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
Kind Regards
