The New Lord Mayor Trevor Cummings met with our NDCN Manager Louise Little at the North Down YMCA, along with their CEO Stuart Buchanan to discuss The Crisis Response Service.
We teamed up with our neighbours at the YMCA when lockdown began at the end of March, to provide a referral and response service that would help support our Community. We work together to help make and prepare meals, deliver these to those in need, drop essential food items off, pick up and deliver prescriptions, deal with foodbank requests and carry out weekly befriending calls.
We have had so much support from donations, volunteers and organisations who have kindly donated food to allow us to help more people.
We will continue to do what we can to support anyone who needs us during these tough times.
