Clare Covid-19 community response helpline
A new helpdesk has been set up to respond to the needs of vulnerable members of our community.
Do you need help?
If you need assistance, helpline operators can put you in touch with volunteers in your area. Volunteers can assist with delivering basic needs such as shopping, medicine, fuel, farming support etc.

About this service
This helpline is an initiative of the Clare Community Response Team (CCRT) and staffed by Clare County Council.
At the instigation of Minister Eoghan Murphy TD, a Covid-19 Community Response Forum will be put in place for each City/County and co-ordinated by the Local Authority in each case.
A dedicated community support helpline has been established in Clare County Council to assist at risk members of the public in accessing non-emergency and non-medical supports and advice during the current public health emergency. The confidential phoneline service is being established by the new COVID-19 Clare Community Support Response Forum, which includes over a dozen agencies and organisations. The helpline is focused primarily on ensuring that vulnerable members of the community or those living alone can access deliveries of groceries, medicine, fuels and farming support etc. The role of the Forum is to ensure that there is a co-ordinated community response and to enable all voluntary statutory agencies to collaborate in support of our communities and particularly of our most vulnerable members.
