Supporting community groups
Work in thecommunity
The Council has been at the frontline in responding to the Covid19 pandemic; including distributing emergency food and medicine, providing vital social care, running testing centres and now rolling out the vaccine.
Throughout 2020 it also had a huge impact on the way that the Council and Councillors worked.
Instead of attending meetings on your behalf at Oldham Civic Centre, all meetings have been held virtually, accessed via phone or laptop. I have undertaken training on using this technology so that I could continue to represent you throughout this difficult time.
In my ward I have not been able to get out and about because of Covid restrictions however I have continued to receive a lot of casework via email, telephone and WhatsApp, at times it has felt like a significant increase in casework which I very much welcome.
I have kept in touch with local community groups as much as possible including volunteering with the Food Bank and other community groups. I have helped with food donations to community groups and assisted with distribution of food parcels to residents and Easter eggs to care homes at Easter.
I look forward to becoming more physically active in the area again when restrictions are finally lifted. In the meantime please feel free to contact me and my ward colleagues should you need assistance in any matter Covid related or otherwise.
Look after yourselves and each other, we will come through this together!
Face to face Ward Surgeries are cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please contact me by phone or email for any issues or problems.
