Each local authority (county council) has established a Community Response Forum to coordinate COVID-19 related community supports. As part of this, each local authority has established a helpline that vulnerable people or those who are staying at home can phone if they are looking for basic services such as delivery of food or meals, or transport for essential trips.
A list of the numbers to call in your own area can be found here; Community Response Forum Phone Numbers .
ALONE, the national charity for older people, is partnering each COVID-19 Community Response Forum. If you need to talk or are looking for support, you can call them on 0818 222 024 or your call can be directed from your local COVID-19 Community Response Forum helpline.
Further information and support around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) can be found on the HSE website here; HSE Covid-19
