Corona virus update: Information on how to find help in the area during the outbreak

As the Corona virus (COVID 19) continues to spread and there are to be further social isolations, many people in Egremont parish may need assistance with a lot of issues.
Egremont Town Council would like to highlight and promote the services offered by the following groups to help the most vulnerable in our parish get through this difficult time-


West Cumbria Covid 19 Mutual Aid is a facebook group set up to help those people who need assistance, you can contact them via the facebook page or you can ring them 7 days a week between 9am & 9pm on 0333 33 55 226.
For those looking to help others, the Cumbria County Council is looking for volunteers and volunteer groups to come forward and offer their services via the Cumbria Local Resilience Forum (CLRF) which consists of organisations and agencies involved with emergency responses in our communities. It brings partners together to respond to extraordinary circumstances faced by communities in Cumbria. Full details of the CLRF can be found on Cumbria County Council’s website at: https://www.cumbria.gov.uk/emergencyplanning/crf.asp
If volunteers would prefer to register their services direct, please go on the website at: www.supportcumbria.org.uk
