LRF Covid-19 - One year on

1 April 2021 - Update on behalf of Lancashire Resilience Forum

Since the government’s roadmap out of lockdown was announced in February, it’s begun to feel like we are finally on the path back to some kind of normality.

The last year has been hard for all of us, as individuals, businesses and families and it’s fair to say there have been some very dark times for many of us. However, it is testament to the dedication, commitment and sheer hard work of everyone in our county that Lancashire can start to look forward to the future with some hope and optimism.

We began to feel the effects of the pandemic back in February 2020, which is when the first emergency meeting of the Lancashire Resilience Forum took place. Since then the member organisations have worked alongside each other, delivering all levels of support, advice and services to individuals and communities across Lancashire. The challenge was immense, but our collective response has made a measurable impact across Lancashire at a time when people needed our support the most.

From supporting local businesses to continue trading safely, providing mental health support to those struggling, working with victims of domestic abuse, keeping our public spaces and countryside Covid-19 safe, right through to recruiting staff to run county wide Covid-19 test sites, the Lancashire Resilience Forum has and will continue to be here for the people of Lancashire.

Here is our Covid-19: One Year On video.

Here's an overview of just some of the amazing work that all LRF partners have been involved with to inform, advise, help, support and protect the residents of Lancashire throughout the pandemic.
