As the reality of our new way of life unfolds, many people and communities are coming together to help the most vulnerable deal with the upheaval to their daily lives.
Mayo County Council’s Community Engagement Section has developed an interactive map which represents volunteer groups and other relevant services that are on-call for those who need them most.
Services include collecting groceries, prescriptions and medication, Meals-on-Wheels, assistance with errands, support on entitlements and the offer of a helping hand or a friendly voice at the end of the phone.
The map gives key information for each of the groups and services, with information of the services available and contact information of how people can get in touch to avail of the service.
Anyone who is involved in a volunteer effort or part of an established service in a local community who would like to be included on the map, can contact the council with: (1 ) The name of your community group, (2 ) Contact name and phone/email; (3 ) Services you wish to provide and (4 ) Area that will be covered
