Personal Shopping for Older Residents

20/03/2020

The brilliant folk at LEAP are offering a free delivery service for eligible older adults who are self-isolating due to the Coronavirus pandemic and have no other methods of support.

This delivery service is available for FREE to residents in most areas of South Lanarkshire who are self-isolating and are:

  • Aged 50-70 with underlying health conditions;

  • Aged 70 plus with or without underlying health conditions; AND

  • Do not have support from friends or family at this time.

 

People can contact us directly and a member of staff or volunteer will come to your house in a safe way to carry out any of the following services:

  • Shopping (essential goods only where these are available);

  • Power Card/Mobile top up; or

  • Pick up prescriptions.

 

By using LEAP’s service you can be sure of your safety. We will do this by:

  • Using our 27 years of experience of working with older adults;

  • FREE delivery to eligible customers;

  • All staff and volunteers are Disclosure Scotland checked;

  • All staff and volunteers will use precautions to ensure we do not bring infection to you; and

  • Payment of your goods will be on delivery of service, with no up-front charges.

 

To find out more about LEAP’s personal shopper service call 0141 641 5169 between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

LEAP is not funded to offer this service, will not make any profit from this but will cover volunteer’s expenses. It will also have running costs. If you would like to help keep this service going through the pandemic, visit https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/leap-personal-shopper-service
