Supporting your community

LOROS is making it easier for people across the city and county to access information about the Hospice’s services thanks to the launch of LOROS Local, a brand new mobile resource centre.

Taking to the roads of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, LOROS Local will make it more accessible for people in the community to find out about the services the Hospice offers, while raising awareness too.

In addition, people will also be able to access a number of non-clinical services on LOROS Local, including bereavement support and complementary therapy.

LOROS Local will also enable nurses, doctors and members of our education team from the Hospice to help train other healthcare professionals by running training sessions locally.

LOROS Local was officially launched with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday 30th March at the Hospice.

For more information about LOROS Local see the list of venues we will be visiting below. You can also view our press release and photo gallery.
