Crofton Park & Honor Oak Park Mutual Aid
Community helping community. If you’re self-isolating in Honor Oak Park or Crofton Park you’re not alone. We’re here to help, just click below.
Owing to the Coronavirus / Covid-19 the public services that we normally rely on simply aren’t able to cope. Around the country communities are getting together to try to support members of their community who need help. It’s called Covid Mutual Aid. If you’re over 70, have a health condition that requires you to self-isolate, or have a similar reason for needing assistance, please reach out.
We’re all volunteers, and we’ll probably make mistakes, but we don’t want you to suffer in silence.
We are a group of Honor Oak Park and Crofton Park neighbours pulling together to offer some support during this crisis. If you need someone to run an errand, pick up some essentials from the shop, walk the dog, or you just need a chat – we will try to help, or find someone who can.
To try and ensure we’re helping people as effectively as possible, we are responding on the basis of the ward you live in. The ward you live in, determines where you vote. So if you vote in one of these 6 locations, we can help (check the map below the list if you’re uncertain).
If you’re not in any of these wards, we’re not going to be able to help you, but there are many other mutual aid groups, so please check our links page to find help.
