Genevieve Carnell, Tanya Salinder and Habiba Alli of Redbridge Covid-19 Mutual Aid have expressed the gratitude shared by many of the volunteers:
“It’s been a game changer and a life-saver. We are already receiving 20+ calls a day and have been able to provide a faster and more effective response to so many more people because of this. We’ve been able to take the group from covering patches of the local area through people sharing their personal numbers, to giving comprehensive support across the whole borough through a joined-up system. We recently helped get a food package to a homeless man who hadn’t eaten for days and we were able to get to him in time because he could call us directly”.
