As a team, our actions in response to Coronavirus are to:
- continue to build and support networks, alliances, and campaigns that ensure those most at risk are protected, safeguarded and considered (i.e. Eden Project Communities ‘Community Action Response’).
- listen and share stories from local communities making sure Government and others are aware of which groups and communities are most vulnerable. And, how the impacts can be eased through welfare support and funds for community self-help.
- promote safe-help and keeping others safe to ensure that we can protect the most vulnerable in society
- create an online space for members to share good practice, resources, and get support around the issues and the actions they are taking
Please note, as from today Community Organisers are closing all face-to-face group activity, and we are looking to do as much as we can online.
We have created a Workplace Covid-19 group on our members on-line community platform to share practical ideas and emotional support, and plan a weekly online session for any member that wants to connect.
