A local Facebook group Burngreave Mutual Aid has been set up for people in the Burngreave area to keep in touch and to help each other out over the coming weeks and months.
It’s there to help people who need support to access food and complete errands, particularly those who are elderly or have underlying health conditions.
Fran Belbin, one of the administrators of the group, posted saying:
“Burngreave Mutual Aid is a local group linked to the main Sheffield Mutual Aid to share useful links, advice and information for those wanting to support each other through the coronavirus pandemic.
“We want everyone to stay safe while supporting each other, so please bear in mind the following:
“Follow the latest advice from the NHS about COVID-19
“Keep people safe from exploitation by following basic safeguarding principles – we will be sharing information about safeguarding in the group.
“Connect with and support the efforts of local community groups – we are more effective working together.”
