Wiltshire Council has created an updated community pack of information to help support communities during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the current national restrictions.
The council previously created a community pack in March which was very well received, and with Individuals and community groups continuing to provide vital support across Wiltshire, the council has again collated all the key information in one place.
The new community pack features current guidance on key information, resources and contacts. This should help communities to make sure everyone in Wiltshire, including the most vulnerable, have access to the right support and know where to turn.
It contains information and advice on issues such as:
- The current restrictions, self-isolating and health advice
- How to access a COVID-19 test and the test and trace scheme
- What communities can do to support themselves
- The local support available
- Business support.
Leader of Wiltshire Council, Cllr Philip Whitehead, said: “Thank you to all of our communities supporting others and looking out for each other, and for playing their part in keeping as safe as possible. We continue to be humbled by the spirit and togetherness shown. We know 2020 has been tough, but it’s important not to become complacent. We need to keep going.
“We will continue to work hard to protect our communities and provide them with the information they need to access vital support and services. We are sharing this updated version of our community pack with all of the key information in one place, and we hope our communities find it useful.
“Please share this far and wide with your community to support each other as much as possible during this time.”
The pack can be found at the council’s dedicated COVID-19 webpage at www.wiltshire.gov.uk/public-health-coronavirus#community-pack, alongside updates and the latest advice.
