Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Following a request from Minister Murphy there is now a Local Authority Community Response Forum in every local authority area. These Forums are coordinating and ramping up work to help ensure all vulnerable members of our communities affected by COVID-19 restrictions are appropriately supported.

Chaired and coordinated by each Local Authority Chief Executive, the Forum will include members of the Local Authority, the HSE, county champions, An Post, Community Welfare Service, An Garda Siochana, Other Statutory Bodies, the Community & Voluntary sector and of course the local Age Friendly Programme. It will lead the coordination of COVID-19 community supports and resilience in each area.

The Forum will ensure the provision of the following services:

  • Collection and delivery of food, essential household items, fuel, medication in line with guidance
  • Transport to community testing centres, clinical Assessment Hubs, GP and hospital appointments
  • Social isolation, supports, engagement
  • Meals and their delivery
  • Other medical/health needs
