Aberdeen City Council has praised workers and volunteers for providing “a real tonic in these uncertain times” as it highlights the work of local heroes in the city.
The local authority’s website now features a new community section, Aberdeen Together, which shines a light on key workers, volunteers and other members of the community who are going that extra mile to help the most vulnerable in the city.
Stories highlight how communities are adapting and creating innovative ways of keeping us entertained at home, delivering essentials and checking in on individuals to ensure that they are safe and well during the ongoing Covid-19 lockdown.
Council co-leader Jenny Laing said: “Coronavirus has impacted everyone, so it is a real boost to witness first-hand the resilience of citizens, and how communities are uniting to create innovative ways of keeping spirits high and helping those in need at this difficult time.
“The positive work taking place across the city really emphasises civic pride and provides a real tonic in these uncertain times.”
The website section, at www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/AberdeenTogether, will be updated regularly as the lockdown continues and community work evolves.
