If you're in a household or bubble with a nursery, school or college student, you should now take a rapid symptom-free Covid test twice a week at home to help protect families and the school community.

Around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 do not have symptoms. Rapid tests can help to pick up cases of coronavirus where someone has no symptoms but is still infectious.

Collect your home test kits from the following local sites โ€“ no appointment needed:


The Oracle, St Anneโ€™s Road โ€“ Mon 8.15am-6.30pm ; Thurs 8.15am-6.30pm; Sat 2.15pm-5.30pm


Whiteholme Youth and Community Centre, All Saints Road โ€“ Tues 12.15pm-6.30pm; Thurs 8.15am-6.30pm


Salvation Army, Raikes Parade โ€“ Tues 8.15am-5.30pm; Wed 8.15am-6.30pm; Fri 10.45am-6.00pm ; Sat 9.15am-12.30pm


Yeadon Way testing site, South Car Park - 1pm โ€“ 8pm

Or order test kits online - www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests

Rapid home testing is only for those who are symptom-free and well. If you have symptoms, you will need to self-isolate immediately and book a different type of Covid test by calling 119, via the NHS Covid-19 app, or online at nhs.uk/coronavirus

If you receive a negative test result, it is still possible that you are in the early stages of a coronavirus infection โ€“ please make sure you stick to local and national guidelines at all times.

The Resilience Framework Covid-19 (Blackpool RR) SCREEN VERSION.pdf

Coming to all Blackpool Households......

A tool that anyone and everyone can use to help build resilience and get through tough times.

In Blackpool, young people, adults and our whole community have been learning about resilience as we lead a world's first Resilience Revolution. It means anyone who lives, works or volunteers in Blackpool can play a part in making our own a more resilient place to grow up and live. Resilience is the ability to bounce forward from tough times. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is one of those tough times - affecting us all in different ways. Inside this Resilience Framework Resource are two versions of our Resilience Framework. One created by young people for young people, and the family version - designed to be used by whole family groups or adults.

If you live in Blackpool, look out for this resource which is being distributed to every household. You can also download a free copy of the leaflet here

Making Resilient Moves as a Family

We want to reach out to extend a hand of solidarity, love and support from the Resilience Revolution during these challenging and uncertain times, and to ensure communication loops between us all continue to be open. We believe that the Resilience Framework, a tool we are all now so familiar with in the Resilience Revolution, offers lots of really practical steps and actions which we can all draw on to navigate this situation and look after ourselves and one another.

Young people, parents, carers, practitioners and many others are already mobilising to create resources, top tips and practical suggestions all linked to making Resilient Moves as individuals, family units and indeed across the whole town! We plan to share as much helpful stuff as we can through this page, which we will update as regularly as possible (hopefully daily!)

The Resilience Revolution is a whole town approach to building resilience and now more than ever we will unite to support each other through this tough time. Please do share any ideas, resources, advice or information that you think will be helpful to others through this page by emailing headstart@blackpool.gov.uk


Stay safe and lets keep connected.
