UK Mutual Aid operations grow

On 4th May, we received our 1,000th help request since the first one in mid-March of this year.  More than 900 callbacks have been made in this time.

We at UK Mutual Aid have recently developed our team of community organisers and expanded our pharmacy operations.  We have also started referring people to a range of services.  These include the Claremont Road Food Hub.  Working together, Jesus House, Claremont Church and UK Mutual Aid opened the Claremont Road Food Hub in NW2, where nutritious meals are prepared for distribution.

We are not affiliated to any political or religious group and work collaboratively with others where we can.

Whilst we have national reach and can connect people to local resources across the country, UK Mutual Aid originated in the London Borough of Barnet.  We will seek opportunities to partner with those working in other parts of the country who are making a difference in their communities.

UK Mutual Aid connects residents who are self-isolating to volunteers and services.  This includes help with shopping, meals, picking up prescriptions, posting mail, getting useful information of just having a chat.  We do what we can to connect people with local volunteers.
