Easy to Find Community Support

May 20, 2020

Do you need support or want to check which shops near you are open?

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is working with regional government departments and the local voluntary and community sector to bring a robust network of support to local residents during the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The latest addition to the council’s website; our ‘Community Services Directory’ map will help you to easily find nearby delivery options, local shops, community support or even online church services, by simply entering your address or postcode and selecting the type of support you require.   

Speaking about the council’s Community Services’ role, Alderman James Tinsley, Chairman of the council’s Leisure & Community Development Committee, said: “We would firstly like to acknowledge the fantastic work that is going on within our area and we want the community groups to know that we appreciate all that they are doing and that the council is here to support them.

“Our signposting service and network of Coordinators in each District Electoral Area (DEA) was set up quickly to make sure individuals and community groups are getting access to advice and support, which will be a lifeline to many.  Backed up with valuable support from our Elected Members this system is delivering a true partnership approach, making real differences to the daily lives of residents.  Our new ‘Community Services Directory’ will make the task of finding support even easier, which is vitally important under the current circumstances.”

If your business or organisation is offering community support or services at this time we need you to add these to our directory to make sure as many of our residents as possible know about it.  You can add your details at: communitysupport.lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk/add-your-organisation
