Community support during the coronavirus pandemic

Local Authorities and other organisations across the country are coordinating community support for vulnerable members of the community. This includes people at-risk and those who are cocooning.

Community support provided by Local Authorities

This support can help with:

  • collection and delivery of food, essential household items, fuel, and medication
  • social isolation
  • other medical or healthcare needs

Pharmacies

Some pharmacies will provide delivery services. Other pharmacies will work with Local Authorities, An Post, the Gardaí and voluntary organisations to get your medicines to you.

Contact your local coronavirus community support team

To get community support, contact your local authority by phone or email.
