The Active Wellbeing Society are jointly working with partner organisations across the city to support those most in need during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak.
Action is required to ensure those who are vulnerable and in need are supported by individuals and communities. The coronavirus is already impacting those with underlying health conditions. Like every crisis, working class-families and people on low-incomes are also likely to suffer the most.
With the will and power of organisations and volunteers, we are working to coordinate collective responses. We want to work collectively with fellow brummies to make sure we all get through this together and help the less privileged during these challenging times.
We are looking to
- Distribute food to those who need it most, both individuals and community groups.
- Refocus our work to ensure we are able to provide comfort and support to people who are self isolating through phone calls and other virtual options.
This is a worrying time and we are looking to work with community organisations and volunteers to ensure everyone gets the support and supplies they need. We are working closely with following trusted local partners
