Monaghan Community Safety Partnership being established to help people in the event of lock-down

A Monaghan Community Safety Partnership is being established to help people in the event of a nationwide lockdown.

The group will hold its first digital meeting in the coming days and it’s hoped the members would co-ordinate with those in need and ensure non medical essential services are available to them.

Representatives from local industries, food networks, the Gardai, and NGOs have been engaged to look at how the group will establish a volunteering model that will minimize points of physical contact in line with current guidelines.

The Partnership is being led by Threemilehouse man, Mark Bell, who is calling on anyone interested in helping to register with the Monaghan Volunteer Centre.
