Enquiries from residents to help those most in need if it proves necessary over the course of coming months in response to COVID-19 are being welcomed.
The news follows various national discussions and news that the council is paying heightened attention to the evolving situation, with a specialist group having been formed within the council to co-ordinate information and guidance from the government and the NHS.
Councillor Diane Smith, Executive Councillor for Adult Services and Public Health said, “Nobody can still be unaware of the very serious threat posed by this virus. As the scale of the threat has become clearer by the day, the increasing willingness of kind hearted people to offer themselves to help those worst affected in whatever way they can has been truly inspiring.”
