ISL Video – The Community Call Advice & Contact Information for Your County

24th April 2020

IDS worked with support of Government of Ireland to create an ISL version of the The Community Call Advice & Contact Information for Your County Booklet.

There is a lot of information and the booklet is split into 5 videos:

  • We’re in this together – The Community Call Forum
  • Collection and delivery of essential items like food, ‘meals-on-wheels’, household items, fuel or medicine
    (in line with guidance)
  • Support if you are experiencing social isolation or are cocooning

  • Who are cocooning?
  • Contact Information

  • Alone National Helpline
  • Interpreting service for Deaf people
  • Irish Remote Interpreting Service (IRIS)

Advice for people giving support

  • Making contact
  • Once you arrive
  • When you leave
  • What if the person is unwell?
  • What if the person is frail and needs help with delivery?
  • What if there is no response?

  • Advice for people needing support
  • Do and Don’t
