COVID-19 Impact Report

Following weeks of conversations and predictions, the UK was ordered into lockdown on Monday 23 March 2020.

Preparatory conversations were already taking place with the Stronger Together Partnership, and to adequately support residents during the temporary new way of living, a plan was needed. Additional groups and organisations were asked to join Stronger Together to ensure all areas, communities and needs were met across the borough of 170K residents.

A volunteer army was needed to support isolated residents, keep them safe and fed and support the Thurrock CVS staff who would be co-ordinating potentially 1000s of request for help.
