Council to write to every resident to check they’re OK

Stroud District Council is set to contact every household in the district, as part of its comprehensive response to help everyone through the coronavirus pandemic.

54,206 letters will be posted this week to the district's 118,000 residents, with useful information on staying safe.

People who need help now or in the future, and those who want to help, can find out how to access what they need. The letter contains useful advice on getting medical care, staying safe and protecting everyone in their communities.

Council Leader Doina Cornell said: "There is a lot of information out there about how to stay safe during the pandemic, and much has been shared online and through local media.

"The country has been in lockdown for a month now, so we hope this letter is a useful reminder and reference point for people who need help and who want to help. We want to make sure that no-one in the district in need of help gets left behind."

The letter, which is printed on yellow paper to make it easier for older people and those with sight problems to read, is signed by all four of the council's political group leaders.
