Derry City and Strabane District Council
NICVA has been working with the 11 councils to connect all the work related to the COVID 19 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.
COVID has brought many challenges for the community development sector across NI. For Foyle Women's Information Network their work to keep women across the North West connected continues.
EASILINK Community Transport: "We care about people and connecting them to the services that they need"
