We’re working alongside our citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. Our Community Response is aimed at supporting those who are most vulnerable and in need of support, and who cannot currently get this help directly from friends, relatives or neighbours.
Kirklees Council are working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations and mutual aid groups through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders). Together we’ve developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others.
Our 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
Please let us know about the things you (or someone who you are concerned about) need help with. You can also tell us how you (or your organisation) can support others.
Or call our Covid-19 Community Response freephone helpline: 0800 4561114
The helpline is open from 8am to 6pm weekdays, 10am to 4pm weekends and bank holidays.
The local number for our Covid-19 Community Response helpline, 01484 226919 will continue to be available, and we will happily call you back.
