How to Keep Your Child Safe During the Coronavirus Pandemic

 

The Children’s Commissioner has published a children’s guide to Coronavirus.  The guide helps to explain the situation and aims to answer questions.  It also gives guidance on how to talk to children about Coronavirus, how to stay safe, protect other people and how to help them make the best of their time at home.

Our Community Response helpline is open

 01484 226919

We’ve opened a new dedicated helpline as part of our Covid-19 Community Response. 

 

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. We’re working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations 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 

Anyone can let us know about the things they need help with, or that someone who they are concerned about might need help with. Individuals, organisations and businesses can also tell us about the support they may be able to offer to others.

 

·       Online forms: Covid-19 Community Response

 

·       Community Response helpline: 01484 226919

 

The helpline is managed by Kirklees Direct and opened at 9am on Wednesday 25th March. It will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. We will review this daily. Citizens and organisations can share information with us online at any time.
