A dedicated community support confidential helpline has been established in Tipperary County Council’s COVID-19 Tipperary Community Response Forum, to assist at risk members of the public in accessing non-emergency and non-medical supports and advice during the current public health emergency. This helpline is focused primarily on ensuring that vulnerable members of the community or those living alone can access deliveries of groceries, medicine and fuels. 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.
Contact can be made through the following channels:-
• Contact number 0761 06 5000 lines open from 8.00am to 8.00PM seven days a week.
