The partnership has come together to form the Blackburn with Darwen Help hub, a central hub to support residents through the Coronavirus.

It shows what partnership working can deliver.

We also urge people to all do their bit.

Everyone has a role in combating this disease.

Everyone can do their bit to help.

We can do our bit by always:
  • following government advice
  • By staying at home
  • Only going out if it’s absolutely necessary such as getting essential supplies
  • When going out, being very careful to keep 2m away from other people
You can save lives by following the these simple rules. You can protect others and yourself.
You can protect our NHS and social care frontline staff by adhering to these steps.

By not following them, you are putting people’s lives at risk.”
