Clean Air Day

For the second year running Leicestershire County Council marked Clean Air Day UK, on 8th October, by renewing its pledge to continue to tackle air pollution and reduce carbon emissions.

In May 2019 the County Council declared a climate emergency and set a goal to be carbon neutral by 2030 for its own operations, committing to reducing carbon emissions, improving air quality, and reducing the environmental impact on the health of county residents. More »

By the end of last year the Council had reduced greenhouse gas emissions from Council operations by 64 per cent. During April, at the height of the lockdown, carbon emissions in the UK fell by some 31 per cent, with findings showing the world experienced the sharpest drop in carbon output since records began. By changing the way residents travel, Leicestershire could contribute to the improvement in air quality.

Through supporting national campaigns such as Clean Air Day the Council hopes to encourage residents to consider their own practices, both now and longer-term, and themselves contribute further to reducing air pollution and carbon emissions.

Filling social care vacancies

The County Council has been working hard throughout the coronavirus pandemic to ensure that social care providers have the staff they need to provide vital services to the vulnerable and those having to self-isolate. The Inspired to Care team launched a recruitment initiative in April this year to support all social care providers, including those meeting the needs of older people and working age adults, so they could carry on their important work during the pandemic.

Within three months of operation the team had placed more than 60 candidates with social care providers across the county.

The Inspired to Care project is continuing to recruit people in the following positions to support those in need:

Previous care professionals

People who are out of work or have reduced hours

Self-employed people

Retail, hospitality or leisure professionals

Students or graduates

No experience is necessary. Full training is provided to ensure applicants can begin work as soon as possible. For more information and to apply anyone who interested is asked to visit www.Inspiredtocare.co.uk/jobs or telephone 0116 305 5186.
