Community Response - Ukrainian Crisis

Wicklow County Council has established a Community Response Forum to coordinate the community-led response in the provision of assistance and support to Ukrainian Nationals as they are accommodated in County Wicklow. The Forum, chaired by the Chief Executive Brian Gleeson, will bring together state, private, community and voluntary organisations acting at local level in response to this emergency. An Internal Response Team has also been set up by the Council to respond to the crisis locally.
