Early into the Covid-19 crisis I formed a community project called Teesside Community Action group. I understood very early on, our communities would find themselves in significant need and the best way to tackle that need would be to support people to support each other. We created Teesside Community Action group which produced support and advice to many new groups and people wanting to take action in their communities. From people giving out food and treats to care workers to street based community support; there were so many people stepping up. Having had a significant number of years experience in voluntary sector management, I wanted to put my knowledge to use, which in turn helped thousands of people during the crisis.
Some projects are continuing today and becoming more formal projects in their own right. If you are looking for support, here is helpful guide we created that you may find useful.
