How do I help my community?
Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK
In response to the government’s call out for volunteers-
Click here for more infomation.
Remember that there are people in our communities who might want to participate in mutual aid without providing the sort of identification documents that are necessary to engage with the government’s scheme, particularly during a time of uncertainty regarding the extent of policing we are likely to see in our communities.
There are also situations where people seeking help may not feel comfortable or safe accessing government support, but would feel happy receiving support from ordinary people in their communities.
We encourage local groups to keep organising independently from government structures, continuing to follow rigorous hygiene and safeguarding practice and to communicate between each-other to learn and develop community solidarity structures during a time of very uneven support from official bodies.
