Support for communities
Details of how we're working with communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every Friday we publish a community bulletin which provides an update on COVID-19 related matters, community resilience, community initiatives, community spirit and volunteering activities being undertaken by citizens and communities, as well as a range of public health and council information.
Self-isolation can be difficult but it is a powerful tool for controlling the transmission of COVID-19. Help and support is available to you while you are self isolating.
The Connecting Scotland Initiative aims to digitally connect people so they can access services and support and connect with friends and family during the pandemic.
Covid-19 is a difficult time for everyone and during this time the Council and its third sector partners are keen to ensure that people requesting emergency food parcels get the support they need.
