Community Support

Here to Help

This website has been developed to help members of the local community find vital information easily during the current worldwide crisis. At the moment responding to the crisis and helping the community through it is the primary function.

As the crisis passes (which it will) the website will continue to develop to provide information to the local community about whats happening in the Ballycastle area.

 

Help Stop the Spread

Everyone must help stop coronavirus spreading. This means you need to:

  • stay at home as much as possible

  • limit contact with other people

  • keep your distance if you do go out (stay 2 metres apart)

  • wash your hands well and often

  • work from home if you can

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms. If you have symptoms you should book a free test.
