Mutual Aid Leaflet

This can be for anyone but is aimed at places where people can go – shops etc. for people to pick up and to keep as a reference and to pick up for others to share and distribute. It gives all the information about the scheme, where to find out more and general, including safety, advice.

Mutual Aid Leaflet

C-19 Mutual Aid volunteer guidance

Handy information for the volunteers, providing guidance and advice and phone numbers if they have any safeguarding concerns from any of their dealings. It is not confidential but is aimed at those who are actually volunteering in their community/neighbourhood rather than for wide distribution.
