About


Mutual Aid is organising at a neighbourhood level. Byker Covid-19 Mutual Aid is a grassroots community group volunteering support for neighbours. We've been running since March 2020 throughout the pandemic helping people to access emergency food and personal care items, and a doing a range of other supportive activities. We still organise food handouts and community meals, emergency shopping and phone top ups for asylum seekers and refugees.
