In our community, there are many individuals and groups who have come forward to offer different types of support to other people in our locality. Community offerings can be anything you want to share, gift or exchange. The only guidance is that they must be done in ways that will keep everyone in our community safe, and no money should change hands (except voluntary donations and fund-raising!).
We are building a rich collection of these ideas and proposals and will post them here in a way that makes them accessible and easy to find. These groups and initiatives are not affiliated with this Mutual Aid Group, but have been established by individuals who are members. If you have ideas or a project that would engage and interest other people, and would help us deal with the difficult situation we are all in, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also please join our community WhatsApp chat group for all manner of chatter about our neighbourhood!
Please remember safe engagement principles at all times. Spread kindness, not the virus!
If you are a member of the community of Islington (resident, work, GP, faith provider...) you can ask for counselling support to work through those difficult feelings.
