Blackpool offers Corona Kindness to help those in need

Corona Kindness

Blackpool Council are setting up a community kindness initiative to those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Corona Kindness has been created for people that may need help with getting food and medical supplies, as well as those that are struggling with social isolation and loneliness.

Cllr Simon Blackburn, Leader of Blackpool Council, said:

“It has become apparent to me over the last few weeks, and days, what an extraordinary community we really have here in Blackpool.  Everyone is doing their very best to support each other.

“This new service and helpline will add to the community support already out there and ensure that no one in Blackpool goes short of the help they need. It will also match the need for support with those that can offer it. I would urge anyone who needs support or who can give it to get in touch.”

The corona kindness service will run from Monday 23 March.

If you think this service will help you, email helpneeded@blackpool.gov.uk or if you would like to help in anyway, contact helpoffered@blackpool.gov.uk.

A webpage will also be set up www.blackpool.gov.uk/coronakindness to find out more information and submit and online form.
