On Thursday 2nd April, the Minister for Rural and Community Development, announced the Governments ‘Community Call’ to link local and national Government with the community and voluntary sectors. It aims to coordinate community activity, direct community assistance to where it is needed, and marshal the volunteering energy of the country while people are cocooning. Our COVID-19 Community Outreach Champions are working as part of this Government Initiative helping to fill the gaps in services and identifying the needs of people living alone who are cocooning. You can find your Local Champion on the map here
