Online COVID Information Resource Set Up

During the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020 we worked with local Public Health Teams and a range of local community wellbeing groups to create a dedicated online information and advice service.

Hundreds of different local services and support links were added to a dedicated website, which offered trusted links to National Guidance, Local Information, General Advice, Mental health services & support, Bereavement Services and even links for Parents, Carers, Children and Young People.

As the COVID-19 situation was emerging, we set up a single webpage to provide up-to-date health information and advice in order to help protect the public, our staff, volunteers, service users, clients and visitors. But soon after we were inundated with visitors to the page and requests from local voluntary, community, and statutory partners requesting us to include their own COVID response offer on our webpages.

Due to public demand and the sheer volume of useful information, advice and guidance on offer, we transformed the COVID-19 section of our website to clearly exhibit the hundreds of support services and links available to people during the lockdown.
