Dedicated Community Support Helpline

In a new initiative between the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government and Local Authorities across the country, new Covid-19 Community Response Forums have been put in place for each county and co-ordinated by the Local Authority in each case to assist vulnerable citizens.

A dedicated community support helpline is now operating to assist citizens, who may be at risk, to access non-emergency and non-medical supports and advice during the current public health emergency.
