The Department of Rural and Community Development is leading the government effort to encourage and facilitate a community response to COVID-19.
The department has developed an Action Plan to support this work.
The Action Plan sets out three key actions for initial focus in supporting a community response to COVID-19.
Each local authority (council) has established a Community Response Forum to coordinate COVID-19 related community supports. As part of this, each local authority has established a helpline that vulnerable people can phone if they are looking for basic services such as delivery of food or meals, or transport for essential trips.
Here is a list of each local authority’s helpline phone numbers.
