Impact of Covid-19 on council services
We're working very hard to maintain our key services for those residents most in need. We need to prioritise and that may mean some changes to the services we're able to offer, but we hope that everyone will understand these aren't normal times.
Scotland moved beyond level 0 restrictions on Monday 9 August 2021. To stay safe and protect others, please follow these rules. Read more about the measures.
As a result of Covid-19 there continues to be variations across communities' and individuals' lived experiences due to the pandemic. Services are still operating at different levels, as we focus on recovery and renewal, and Covid-19 will continue to have an impact on future performance and delivery of services.
We aim towards achieving previous performance levels, particularly in areas where services were most affected by the impact of Covid-19.
Our employee values are ambition, kindness and trust and all our staff are doing their very best to demonstrate these values even in these extremely challenging times.
Our own staff have been affected by the impact of Covid-19. Some are ill or have family members they need to care for. In line with the current national guidance, many of our staff are still working from home.
We've been greatly encouraged by the support we have had from local residents and businesses and urge you to work together with us as we continue to work our way through these difficult times.
