Dawlish is here to help
The current Coronavirus pandemic has been a worrying time for our community. The Town Council and partners through Helping Dawlish have been providing a range of services to help local people to cope and to support each other. As the initial emergency response has now been carried out and lockdown measures are starting to ease, we are stepping back a little and turning our attention to helping the community rebuild through our individual organisations.
Helping Dawlish will remain in place so that we can respond again to any second wave, to another lockdown or to other issues that may arise and have an impact on our community. We are also conscious that some people are still shielding, still isolated, or are still being impacted by the effects of the lockdown on their finances, families, businesses, mental and physical health and may require support.
We will continue to share useful local/national information and advice and will continue to provide emergency support where there is a genuine need. Please see the website pages for further information.
With thanks to all those that have supported Helping Dawlish to date through volunteer time, donations, publicity and meal preparation.
