Dunadd Community Enterprise and Community Council have been able to secure limited funding to support the community during the Covid 19 crisis.
Part of this fund is available to Dunadd residents, who are struggling at the present moment, please share this information and please encourage people to apply.
The fund is being distributed in £60 cash handouts to households and residents who are struggling at the present time, and is aimed to support families with food and essentials, electricity key cards etc, however other financial pressures can be applied for.
Please read the information sheet that also explains how we would treat applicants confidentiality.
As a key service in your community, we recognise bus is for many the only way to access shops for food, prescriptions and other essentials. It also provides a vital service for critical and essential workers.
Last week we introduced free travel to all NHS staff and care workers who are working flat out during these times, but I think we could do a lot more to help around the community. I have personally spoke with a few of the local businesses to set up a delivery service for getting the essentials to places like Achnamara, Crinan, Kilmichael, Slockavullin, Ormsary and Ford these business are happy to take the order over the phone and our vehicles will stop by on route and pick anything up and take the supplies to these places.
The citylink services have been stepped down to one service instead of the five services a day, so the local communities in Lochgair, Minard, Furnace and Inveraray may struggle on getting the essentials. I’m currently working on trying to introduce a service what will enable anyone to get into Lochgilphead to pick anything up and get back home again with a short timeframe, I hoping to have this in place by the middle of this week. This will also open the door to delivering to these communities on route!
The problem we are having is trying to spread the word, would you be able to help??
More than happy for you to phone me to discuss in more detail.

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
