COVID-19 Community Support Resources
People everywhere are banding together to help each other practically, emotionally and financially as this mass system disruption takes effect.
Community-building is a core aspect of XR, and it is the main thing we need to do right now!
Let us be the community that looks after the people left behind by this broken system.
Let us help each other through this mass system disruption.
Let us keep focus on the climate and ecological emergency that continues to unfold.
Food Donations Needed
Some of the most vulnerable people to COVID-19 are those who struggle for food and shelter.
Every charity we’ve spoken to are desperate for food donations – can you work in your group (see below to start one) to pull together food packs and drop off to your nearest charity?
Group collection/delivery is best to reduce physical interactions.
Sign up with Volunteers WA
Volunteers WA have created a special Emergency Volunteers registration – they will match people with services requiring help!
Comprehensive list of COVID-19 precautions.
We’re developing a full online program of events – from Yoga and Live Music, through to Town Hall talks and Peoples Assemblies and Working Group meetings.
In some ways it’s even easier to get involved!
and… strangely fun to be #AloneTogether !
Meet your street
Connect up with every household in your street – we will need each other in coming weeks and months.
This is known as ‘mutual aid’ – helping each other without Big Brother.
Connect your street to:
- do shopping runs
- look out for that isolated person, are they OK?
- walk their dog
- share precious toilet paper
- invent cool activities to stay connected, but apart.
- Driveway dinners, anyone?
Connect with others in your postcode
We’ll put you in touch with other Rebels in your area.
Pull it together
Help us track the various community services that need help, or that are offering help.
You’ve seen that food delivery service advertised…list it here!
You know of a fantastic Facebook group in your area…list it here!
You know a charity desperate for help…list it here!
It’s really hard to keep track of a social media feed or other news sources.
Help us create a really useful resource that just lists them all!
