COVID-19 - Services

Blyth Town Council COVID-19 Response

Blyth Town Council are working alongside partner agencies to help support communities and the vulnerable people in society. Our officers are working hard to direct help for those in self-isolation who may be struggling to shop for essentials, collect prescriptions or feel lonely as a result of the isolating measures in place. We are working with the NHS, Northumberland County Council, Northumbria Police and Social Services to ensure we are supporting our community in the best way possible.

Funding/Support

If you are a group/organisation providing support in the Blyth community and are in need of financial assistance to provide your service you should, in the first instance, contact Northumberland Communities Together.

Northumberland Communities Together has been launched in response to the global pandemic. It is making sure residents are kept safe and well throughout the crisis whilst providing coordination to support volunteers, voluntary groups and communities accross the county.
