COVID-19 vaccination programme tells you who is eligible and how to get vaccinated.
Our Community Response is aimed at supporting those who are most vulnerable and in need of support, and who cannot currently get this help directly from friends, relatives or neighbours. We're working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities.
We're working especially closely with our voluntary sector partners. Together we're offering a co-ordinated Community Response. This will help us all to make sure that people who are vulnerable can easily request help when needed. We're also offering support for local groups and organisations to make sure that we can all help each other in our local places.
If you need support, or if you can offer support, please get in touch. We are with you.
