Both Cavan and Monaghan’s COVID-19 Community Response Fora and helplines launched

Both Cavan and Monaghan’s local COVID-19 Community Response Fora and helplines have officially launched today.

It has been initiated in every county at the instigation of Minister Eoghan Murphy, with local authorities acting as the lead agency.

The aim of these is to bring together the various agencies locally that are currently operating independently, delivering care to older and vulnerable people in our communities.

These forums will now connect a number of local services, as well as providing helplines for those in need to call during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Monaghan people can Freephone 1800 804 158 between 9am and 5pm, seven days a week.

While Cavan’s free helpline number is 1800 300 404 and will be open from 8am to 8pm every day.
