Individuals are working to build hyper local communities that care for the vulnerable and to foster a sense of local solidarity.
Sophie is a resident in the United Kingdom. As the Covid-19 crisis unfolds, Sophie has developed a community in her street. Inspired by UK MutualAid, she set up a facebook group for the neighbours to connect and help each other. She also distributed flyers with her phone number, creating an offline pathway to connect with the local community. She has matched volunteers to those needing help.
