Waterside care is an initiative aimed at helping communities improve their local waterways (e.g. canals, brooks and rivers). Keep Britain Tidy is working in partnership with the Environmental Agency, Canal & River Trust and Severn Trent Water to set up Waterside Care groups in areas across the Midlands who then 'adopt' a local stretch of waterway.

First Contact Plus
First Contact Plus is an online tool which helps adults in Leicestershire find information about a range of services all in one place.
The initiative allows residents who require help with one or a number of issues to access a catalogue of information, advice, help and support.
Information and resources on housing, health, living independently, money advice, work, security and other topics that assist the county’s residents can be found on this site.
First Contact Plus is delivered by Leicestershire County Council in partnership with GPs, the police, health organisations, voluntary groups and social care departments, district & borough councils who are helping adults across the county by working together to make access to services much easier.

Named Accountable GP
All GP practices are required to allocate a named accountable GP for each patient. If you would like to know who your allocated GP is, please ask next time you ring or visit the surgery.
The allocation of a GP does not restrict you to that Doctor or limit access to any of our services.
Do you feel that you or your loved one need more support to remain as well as possible and to avoid the risk of getting into a crisis situation, which means you may result in being admitted to hospital urgently?
Working with you or your family member to produce a care plan can give you peace of mind and reduce your risk of being admitted to hospital, when it can probably be avoided.
Would you like to develop a care plan to help you or a loved one avoid a health crisis? For more information, please read the attached Care Plan Leaflet
