Government Action Plan for Community Response to COVID-19
The Government has produced an Action Plan for Community Response to COVID-19 providing supports for Community and Voluntary organisations as they meet the challenge of supporting the most vulnerable.
The three key actions contained in this Action Plan are:
- Encourage and facilitate volunteering – in partnership with Volunteer Ireland, 22 Volunteer Centres and 7 Volunteer Information Services, supported by Local Development Companies, particularly for those organisations who face an increase in demand for services and a possible decrease in volunteers and staff (due to self isolating / being sick etc.).
- Provide community supports for older people – in partnership with ALONE.
- Establish a helpdesk facility for local community groups – in partnership with the 31 Public Participation Networks nationwide.
More resources and information for Community and Voluntary organisations is also available on the Government's website at this link.
