Community-Led Support Groups **Update 23/3/20**
Warwickshire County Council is committed to supporting our communities through the current COVID-19 pandemic, and has dedicated a section on the website to help us to do this: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/information-coronavirus.
In order to keep people up to date with details that will hopefully help residents, local communities, groups and organisations, and the voluntary and community sector to be connected, safe, well and supported; we have developed a series of webpages offering information and advice on COVID-19.
Of relevance to local communities and the groups that support them are the following pages:
- Advice for people who want to get involved
- Advice for the voluntary and community sector and town and parish councils
As well as offering some practical tips and resources that they can use both as individuals and to mobilise local community action to support their community, there are also several links to other relevant information sources – providing further accurate and up to date information.
Critically, there is also a directory of the local ‘community led support activity’ that has emerged across Warwickshire in response to this global crisis. Please click here to access the directory. It can also be accessed from both webpages and the link will remain the same even following updates.
This information will be updated daily to reflect the situation as new groups and activities are developed and the details are submitted to us via our questionnaire. If you are aware of any groups or support that is not captured on this directory, please let us know via our questionnaire.
We would urge you to promote these webpages, and the database of local activity, through your local networks to help ensure they reach all communities across Warwickshire.
Regular updates will also be provided through our Connecting Communities bulletins (such as this one). If you would like to sign up to our mailing list to receive further updates, please visit: https://mailchi.mp/warwickshire/countywidecommunities.
For more information or any questions, please email the Localities Team on .
Your council is open for business and we are here to help you. If you are calling us, please be patient as we do our best to respond, but we may need to prioritise support for callers most in need. We have a dedicated page for services affected by COVID-19. This page includes information about changes to public transport, as well as the cancellation of Community Forums.
