Calling all local Mutual Aid Groups

Lewisham COVID-19 Response Hub wants to look at a longer term response to the impact of this crisis – while continuing their current support to individuals -  and understand how they can work better together with a broad number of mutual aid groups.  

The Lewisham COVID-19 Response Hub (Lewisham Local, Voluntary Services Lewisham, Lewisham Food Bank and AGE UK Southwark & Lewisham) also want to know what sort of support would be most helpful to you right now. 

They would really appreciate your time in completing these questions:

  1. Area / postcodes your Mutual Aid Group covers?
  2. How many volunteers are involved in your group?
  3. How is your group organised and run?
  4. How many vulnerable individuals you have supported & currently supporting?
  5. What support might Lewisham Local be able to provide you?  
  6. Do you support any local food projects?  If yes, please name them and tell us how you support them:
  7. Would you find any of the following useful:
  •  
    • Safeguarding guides, toolkits & policies
    • Training for volunteers
    • News on funding opportunities
