Parish Council Noticeboard


The last year has been difficult for everyone in different ways. 

The data shows that Minority Ethnic communities were hit hardest with COVID. 

We are keen to understand how COVID has affected these communities within Warwickshire. 

The survey will ask questions about how COVID has affected you. This information would be really helpful to understand where we need to support communities in our recovery from COVID-19.

 

Please take part in this survey and encourage others from BAME communities to take part in the survey. Your details will be kept confidential. 

The survey is open until 30th April 2021: http://warwickshire.gov.uk/covidsurvey


Warwickshire County Council is committed to supporting our communities through the current COVID-19 pandemic, and has dedicated a section on the website to help us to do this: https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/information-coronavirus.


As the information is constantly evolving, we have revamped the above webpage and the web links have been updated. The following information can be found under the "Volunteering" section:

As well as offering some practical tips and resources that they can use both as individuals and to mobilise local community action to support their community, there are also several links to other relevant information sources – providing further accurate and up to date information.

Critically, there is also a directory of the local ‘community led support activity’ that has emerged across Warwickshire in response to this global crisis. Please click here to access the directory. It can also be accessed from both webpages and the link to the directory will remain the same even following updates.

This information will be updated daily to reflect the situation as new groups and activities are developed and the details are submitted to us via our questionnaire. If you are aware of any groups or support that is not captured on this directory, please let us know via our questionnaire.

We would urge you to promote these webpages, and the database of local activity, through your local networks to help ensure they reach all communities across Warwickshire.  

Regular updates will also be provided through our Connecting Communities bulletins (such as this one). If you would like to sign up to our mailing list to receive further updates, please visit: https://mailchi.mp/warwickshire/countywidecommunities.

Please direct any questions to connectingcommunities@warwickshire.gov.uk.

Your council is open for business and we are here to help you. If you are calling us, please be patient as we do our best to respond, but we may need to prioritise support for callers most in need. We have a dedicated page for services affected by COVID-19.
