The Covid Call with Declan Meehan is a brand new Saturday Morning Show on East Coast FM dedicated to those cocooning in the county. The hour-long program will start on Saturday May 16th from 9am.
‘The Covid Call’ aims to help vulnerable groups in our society, such as cancer patients/survivors, the elderly & those with disabilities in our society. Declan will speak with the people directly affected, how they’re coping, advice from medical professionals, how to access support services and tips on protecting their mental health during the crisis.
Nationally the topic of Covid – 19 is at the forefront of all communication. This Show will raise awareness on how people can access online support, be it through Zoom meditation classes, psychological support, help lines open to them etc. It also aims to raise awareness to the wider public that there are people suffering, often alone, and to encourage them to reach out to neighbours with the offer of help.
Producer Clare Hogan says, ‘Right now, we all need that extra bit of company to get us through this time and we aim to make sure Wicklow Cocooners have a special hour of the week, where we focus on their needs’
Declan Meehan will continue to present ‘The Morning Show’ from his home weekdays from 10am which will keep Wicklow up to date on the latest news in Wicklow and around the county and share all the ways people in Wicklow are helping each other.
