South Holland District Council Keep Connected with residents through COVID-19 leaflet

Published on 19 May 2020

South Holland District Council has produced a new leaflet which will be sent to households across the District next week, to help ensure businesses and residents have all the information they need as we move into the next phase of the country's response to COVID-19.

The leaflet, which will be sent to every household in South Holland, is split into five categories covering a wide range of topics for residents and businesses alike. The categories are Your Essentials, Your Home, Your Wellbeing, Your Money and Your Business.

Also included are key contact details for organisations in the area offering support, links to funding opportunities and government support for businesses, information about help with paying council tax or claiming benefits, guidance around waste collections and advice for tenants on how to arrange for emergency repairs from the Council.

All of this information is also included within the Coronavirus Support section of the Council website, as well as the latest Service Updates from the District and other useful links. You can visit this area at www.sholland.gov.uk/COVID19. The Council's social media channels also contain all the latest information and advice around Coronavirus and other council services. You can follow them @SHollandDC on Twitter or at SHDC_official on Facebook.

Councillor Gary Porter, Leader of South Holland District Council, said: "We know that our community is experiencing a difficult time at the moment, whether that's uncertainty around the health of your family, or uncertainty around the future of your jobs and livelihoods.

"Working with our partners, we are committed to helping you through these difficult times. This leaflet provides you with the some of the support you need, signposts you to financial support, help if you're a private or council tenant, emotional and wellbeing support and for business owners, signposts to advice and financial support.

"Please take the time to read the leaflet either when it arrives on your doormat or on the Council website. You can also follow the Council's social media channels for all the latest information and guidance available. Please stay safe and please continue to look out for and after each other."

The leaflet has also been made available on the Council website in an accessible 'page turner' format. You can view this at: https://www.sholland.gov.uk/keepconnected.
