messageGoose Green Solidarity Fund
Posted by gumshoe April 17, 10:55PM

Very happy to announce that the Goose Green Mutual Aid group has now launched a solidarity fund (see: [opencollective.com]). The fund provides assistance to Goose Green residents who are struggling financially as a result of COVID-19. This fund can be used for anything, from buying groceries to paying for prescriptions. There is neither judgement nor is there an obligation to pay back the money. This is run in direct accordance with principles of mutual aid - “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need”.

Please spread the word! x

Hey folks, an update for you:

an update from the Solidarity Fund - over £1,000 distributed in a month, everyone should be proud. You can take a look at all of our accounts on the website, and contribute towards the continued running of the fund as well:

[opencollective.com]

This month we've been able to support over 28 separate requests for funds, which goes some way in ameliorating the harsh conditions that are exacerbated by COVID-19, and which existed prior to the virus too. We also understand that the logic of austerity and cuts will mean that people's livelihoods will be further threatened in the future, post-COVID, so we are doing our best to make the fund sustainable for the long haul. If you can forward this to people who you work with or your neighbours, too, we would be greatly appreciative, and if you feel like you could use the fund then you are welcome to make a request.

We are always in need of contributions so anything you can spare will help make a tangible difference to people's lives.
