What we do?

BARNET COVID-19 MUTUAL AID - What we do?

In short we are a volunteer service helping people who are self-isolating as a last line where people have no one else to turn to. We also share information of help from different sources so everyone can get the help they need.

The Government will provide to extremely vulnerable people - if you have not received a letter and fall under the categories in the Guidance, then please go to Register Here. Note: after registering you will need to contact your GP or Clinician who will have to confirm that you fall under this category and current feedback is that process is not fully setup so may take time.

Barnet Council will also provide help, so if you need help please go to Barnet Council Help.

If you have family and friends to help you shop, check up on you etc that is great. Unfortunately there are many people at the moment that don't have anyone right now and that is where we come in and help. You can ask for help at helpme.mutualaid.co.uk - you can register for yourself or if you know someone without Internet access you can register for them.

This is a volunteer service and the demands are great, so we have to prioritise, but we have awesome volunteers going out of their way to help. You can see where our volunteers are located by going to map.mutualaid.co.uk and putting in your postcode in the search window.

We are always looking for Volunteers, their act of kindness makes a world of difference to their vulnerable neighbours, if you would like to help please sign up at signup.mutualaid.co.uk - we would love to have you.

Additionally, we have local WhatsApp groups that can be used to connect with some near neighbours which is great as it is easier for you to help each other.

Alternatively, you may leave a voicemail with us on 020 31 377 488 and we will call you back to organise a volunteer.

If you would like to help us with a donation to cover the expenses we have - please go to https://opencollective.com/barnetmutualaid
