Covid-19 Community Response in Kirklees

hand reaching out behind glass

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.
