Redbridge Council’s Coronavirus Information Hub hits over 200,000 views online
Published: 24 April 2020
The Council’s online Coronavirus Information Hub has become a valuable resource for the local community, clocking up more than 220,000 views since its launch in mid-March.
The Hub features on the council’s website and provides a wealth of information across a range of topics, including support for families, businesses, renters and landlords; information on what to do following the loss of a loved one; the borough’s Wellbeing Service, and how to access help getting essentials such as food.
The most visited pages linked to the hub have been ‘Changes to Services’, ‘Business Grants’, and the Council’s new ‘Wellbeing Service’.
Local people are being signposted to the Hub for all the latest Government advice, useful tips and advice, and the most up-to-date council service changes.
The Hub was recently praised by leading UK thinktank, the Local Government Information Unit (LGiU), with the organisation highlighting the Hub as an example of good practice.
The Leader of Redbridge Council, Cllr Jas Athwal said:
“There’s a lot of information circulating online, and some of it may not always be the most accurate, or up-to-date. That’s why our Coronavirus Hub should be the first port of call for local people to get the most trusted, and up-to-date advice, including the most recent Government guidelines.
“We want to make sure local people have access to the right information, and the knowledge they need to help navigate their way through this pandemic.”
