Expense policies

EXPENSES

Expenses will be paid for purchases made to support our efforts to bring aid to those in need during the Covid-19 crisis. Expenses will only be paid for purchases which directly contribute to our aid efforts, which is to say either 1.) goods and services for those in need or 2.) goods and services which facilitate Arthur’s Hill Mutual Aid delivering that aid to those in need.

Expenses will include but are not limited to:

  1. Food

When we purchase food on behalf of self-isolating people, we will generally be reimbursed by them. However, this is not always possible, and we will be bringing aid to many people who are unable to pay for their own food. In such a case, whenever possible we will source donated food from larders, supermarkets, etc. for these people, but we will purchase food for those in need when necessary and if we are able.

  1. Medicine

When we purchase medicine on behalf of self-isolating people, we will generally be reimbursed by them. However, this is not always possible, and we will be bringing aid to many people who are unable to pay for their own medicine. Where possible we will attempt to access free medicine through the NHS, but we will purchase it for those in need when necessary, where we are able. Similarly, we will also purchase baby supplies on behalf of new parents, and we will generally be reimbursed by them. Where this is not possible, we will purchase food for those in need, again where we are able to.

Each transaction requires its own expense claim, and claims are to be restricted to £30 or less. This is an upper limit (aligned to the maximum contactless card spend) to protect volunteers from financial hardship.
