Covid-19 Community Supports: Supports for Organisations, Community, and Voluntary Groups

March 30, 2020  Posted in: Community

The Wheel

On Friday evening 27 March 2020, An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar announced COVID-19 Community Outreach (CCO), which will be coordinated by The Wheel and Irish Rural Link, and funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development.  CCO will link and support the work of community and voluntary organisations across Ireland who are responding to meet the needs of communities during the COVID-19 crisis. The Wheel have already deployed a Community Champion in each of the 26 counties. As members of your local authority’s COVID-19 forum, the Community Champions will play a key role in coordinating local community supports. If your organisation is currently supporting vulnerable people in the community, or if you are planning to do so, we urge you to contact your local Community Champion as soon as possible. Visit  www.wheel.ie/covid-19-community-outreach for your local Community Champion’s details.
