Supporting the community

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, supporting the borough’s residents, especially the most vulnerable, has been the council’s top priority.

A major undertaking has been carried out with community groups to ensure people who were most in need could get help, food and assistance with obtaining medicines and other essential deliveries.
We have also had to find ways to continue to deliver the essential services which are relied on by all residents by adapting how we operated in the face of the coronavirus challenge.

Councillor Liz Frost, Council Covid-19 spokesperson said “Supporting our most vulnerable residents has been at the heart of our response to the pandemic.  It has been fantastic to see how our council staff, together with the third sector and other partners, have worked together to ensure these people are looked after and supported during these challenging times.

“This great work will continue in the weeks and months ahead as we reach out to people across the borough to offer help and support where needed.”
