Kirklees has opened a new dedicated helpline as part of their Covid-19 Community Response.
Kirklees Council are working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. They're working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders).
Together they've developed a coordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others. Their response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vulnerable in our communities.
How to request support or offer support
Anyone can let them know about the things they need help with, or that someone who they are concerned about might need help with. Individuals, organisations and businesses can also tell them about the support they may be able to offer to others.
· Community Response helpline: 01484 226919
The helpline is managed by Kirklees Direct and opened at 9am on Wednesday 25th March. It will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. This will be reviewed daily. Citizens and organisations can share information with them online at any time.
