COVID 19 Action with Local Councils

NICVA has been working with the 11 councils to connect all the work related to the COVID19 crisis that is going on throughout Northern Ireland.

We have designated a staff member to each council as a liaison to communicate directly with council staff. These staff members have also been working with local organisations to update the CommunityNI website with COVID 19 services and support. We want to work with the councils to highlight what they are doing and provide any support and added value that we can.
