Sefton Council’s COVID-19 Shielding Support Service shortlisted for award

The iNetwork Awards recognise the innovative work taking place across the public sector and Sefton Council has been shortlisted for its shielding support service delivered during the first lockdown in 2020.

Staff were redeployed and worked alongside partners and volunteers to support the most vulnerable. Ranging from a friendly voice, implementation of support packages, social care assessments, financial support, through to escalation of emergency domestic violence situations or supporting those on the edge of crisis, the shielding support service continued throughout the initial four months of the pandemic and received overwhelming praise.

Watch this short video to see one of the team in action.

People can vote for Sefton Council’s COVID-19 Shielding Support Service in the ‘Transforming and Innovating Public Services’ & ‘Covid Response Recognition’ categories here.

Voting closes at midnight on Sunday 24th January.
