About 🌱

We’re people from the area who’ve started organising support activities as the situation has unfolded. We don’t have any formal structure or funding, we’re just here to help if help is needed.

For a longer description of what we do please read this overview and if you want more detail please check the links in this handbook.


Working groups are self-organising independently and collaborating with each other as required. These are the current working groups:

If you have any questions about working group activity or want to join one, please email us.


Facebook is a good place to check for updates and ask questions:

There has been lots of community activity in response to the crisis (lots of it on Facebook), with plenty of overlap between groups and areas.
