Support for communities
Details of how we're working with communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Connecting Scotland Initiative aims to connect up to 9,000 more people on low incomes who are considered clinically at high risk so they can access services and support and connect with friends and family during the 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.
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.
To support our citizens during COVID-19, our Council is providing access to free sanitary products.
