Ways to stay connected

Support for mutual aid groups and local organisations

We all need to be more distant from each other right now. But we need to stay connected. We’re here to support anyone who is part of the community response to Covid-19. Here are some ways you can keep in touch for the latest information, advice and support.


Facebook group for local aid group administrators

facebook groupKirklees Council have a private Facebook group for the administrators of local mutual aid networks. Please request access to this group if you are the organiser of a local group which is responding to Covid-19. You can join the conversation for support and advice.

Video catch ups for local aid groups

Zoom video conferencesAs part of the co-ordinated Community Response to Covid-19, Kirklees Council and our partners have organised regular Zoom Conferences. The video calls are an opportunity for shared learning, for you to ask any questions, give updates, share your experiences or seek guidance.

You should be able to take part on a smart phone, tablet or computer. In order to avoid overloading these conference calls we’re asking that only leading organisers in your group dial in. All groups on our contact list have received the Zoom link. You can request the link by joining the Facebook group or by contacting Luc.Bride@Kirklees.gov.uk
