Another UPG Landmark!
20,000 Food parcels distributed since March 2020. One million pounds of food distributed to vulnerable families and elderly households in a capital city that has considerable wealth and economic standing despite of Covid 19 and Brexit. What is there to celebrate? Plenty!

If you live in a Tier 4 area, you cannot leave or be outside of the place you are living unless you have a reasonable excuse. You cannot meet other people indoors, unless you live with them, or they are part of your support bubble. Outdoors, you can only meet one person from another household. You are strongly encouraged to stay at home.
Hands. Face. Space
Approximately 1 in 3 people who have coronavirus have no symptoms and could be spreading it without realising it.
Remember ‘Hands. Face. Space’.
- hands – wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds
- face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings)
If you need food, or if you know of a family or elderly/vulnerable person, who needs food, you can collect food parcel & ready meals distribution.

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.
