Lockdown Heroes

Who is your Lockdown Hero?
In the country's hour of need many 'ordinary' people stepped up. As a result QPR in the Community Trust are working with Addison Community Champions to launch this exciting online campaign.

We are asking families to create a handmade card for someone who has been supportive and kind during these difficult times.  We want you to produce and deliver a card to your Lockdown Hero.

We will share your images on QPR Trust's social media.

How do I help my community?

Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK

In response to the government’s call out for volunteers-

staying in-4×3-image_7-393 copy

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.
