The helpline number will be operated during normal business hours and is 01546 605524. Queries that will be addressed include Financial, Business, Health, Education, Registration and Social & Homecare Needs. Individuals can also use the helpline to volunteer.

I’d be grateful if you would kindly use your wider networks to promote this newly launched number and the webform.
The Scottish Government has today (24 March) announced further support for businesses affected by the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The aim of the Scottish Government Coronavirus Business Support Grant is to keep companies in business, help protect jobs, prevent business closure and promote economic recovery. The fund will be administered by local authorities.
up to date information found on the following website
The community council is developing its response to the current situation and has coordinators in different areas. We are looking for volunteers who can deliver shopping, pick up prescriptions, chat over the phone, etc .
We are also trying to identify people who are self isolating and need help. As you will be aware it is difficult to be confident everyone has got the message in an isolated rural area, so we ask that you share this with neighbours, friends, etc. This way we hope to get a message to everyone.
we ask all people who are volunteering to take heed of this information from Argyll and Bute Council
