I am based at Macc, the organisation that supports the voluntary community and social enterprise sector in the city of Manchester.
I have been working with those community groups or mutual aid groups which set up in response to the pandemic and are organising support for people in their local area. The groups in Manchester are varied in their size, approaches, and structures, and we have offered support to them all in partnership with public and voluntary sector colleagues.

I have also set up the Greater Manchester Mutual Aid Network for those who are part of or working with mutual aid groups in Greater Manchester: https://twitter.com/GMMutualAid.
