The Long Ashton Coronavirus Support Network (LACOVID Network) came into being after local resident Kate Bolton posted the idea on social media and was overwhelmed by offers of support.
Over a very short period of time, the organisation has evolved and is now fully supported and partially funded by the Long Ashton Parish Council. We currently have over 150 volunteers working with us and more are coming forward every day.
The Network operates under the governance of a steering group that includes members of the Network, Parish Councillors and representatives of North Somerset Council. We are in the process of setting up the LACOVID network as a social enterprise.
