Several mutual aid groups have been set up across Sussex to build local support networks during the Covid-19 pandemic and (hopefully) beyond! All the groups can be found on this map – they include Brighton & Hove, Eastbourne, Worthing and many many more! Many places are split into smaller areas so people can connect with people nearest to them.
There are now thousands of local groups across the country. Find out more, including how to set up a group in your area here: covidmutualaid.org
For those in co-ops and other community businesses, there is also a UK-wide Community Business Mutual Aid group. They are holding weekly Zoom calls on Tuesdays at 11.30am to discuss issues and share best practice. Calls are split into ‘breakout rooms’ covering specific themes.
