Dozens of staff have helped to set up the Community Volunteer Hubs, manning phone lines and making calls to offer help and reassurance to thousands of vulnerable residents throughout the District.

Additionally, a number of staff have been redeployed to our frontline Customer Services team and to our Hop Oast depot to ensure the frequency and quality of our Waste and Recycling collection services  to the public.

Many colleagues across the Council are now working from home and doing their best to deliver all our  key services to support our residents and businesses in these challenging times.
