Covid-19 in Camden

We all know these are uncertain times, but something people should not have to worry about is having the support of their local council at a time when they need it most.

These are particularly difficult times for the elderly and vulnerable in our community. Camden has been working to ensure help is available to those who need it. Camden Council will:

  • keep vital services running – even if they have to be delivered in a different way

  • ensure no Council tenant loses their home because they are affected by COVID19

  • ensure that those who work for care providers don’t have to choose between their wage, their health and the health of those they support

  • help to ensure everyone has access to food whether they are unwell, isolating or caring

  • support, encourage and mobilise the huge community spirit which exists in Camden

Thank you to everyone working in front line services whether in the NHS, or keeping local services going, serving in our shops and pharmacies, or caring for children or relatives. And thank you to everyone checking on neighbours and friends. This period will be challenging for everyone who may feel isolated or who may be in overcrowded conditions, so please do stay in touch with your friends and neighbours.

Please do follow the clear advice from the government, the mayor of London and the council asking our communities to stay home to save lives. If you do need to go out please do keep the two metres distance apart.

If you’re struggling at home call Camden on 0207 974 4444 (option 9).

Here are some other things you can do to help the community effort.
