Many people will be anxious about the steps the government has taken to stop the spread of the coronavirus. It is the right decision to restrict our normal way of life to tackle this crisis. Everyone has a part to play by staying safe.
As local Councillors, we will continue to do all we can to support the most vulnerable in our communities. We have been helping to set up groups of volunteers to help and protect those most in need.
If somebody you know needs to self-isolate due to coronavirus, they will be advised to call on friends, family and neighbours to help with some of the basic tasks. If they cannot get help then you can help them to register with the Council on 01274 431000 where they will be able to get help and support.
You can also volunteer to help in your community and join other volunteers helping and supporting everyone across the district. Call the Contact Centre on 01274 431000 to register. You will be connected to lots of practical ways you can help - from checking on neighbours to delivering supplies, to running projects or supporting care services.
If you're healthy and low risk, you can sign-up to help. Call the Contact Centre on 01274 431000 to volunteer or by completing this form.
All volunteer roles will comply with the latest guidance to minimise the risk of spreading the virus, and many opportunities can be undertaken from home. Please remember if you are helping others out, to take care of yourself first and always follow the latest advice on social distancing and self-isolation.
You can keep up to date with information from the Liberal Democrats by visiting our website on https://www.bradfordlibdems.org.uk.
If you need any help or information then please give us a call using any of the numbers for local Councillors and we will do our best to help.
With our best wishes,
Councillor Jeanette Sunderland and the Bradford Liberal Democrat team
