A Huge List Of Local Community Aid Groups Filled With People Offering Help, Listed By Area

By Katherine Notman March 19, 2020

We’ve compiled a giant list of Facebook groups filled with people offering help in their local areas.

It’s a confusing time for everyone at the moment but some people are sending a simple and lovely message to one another — we have your back.

Self-quarantine can be a difficult experience for those who struggle with their mobility, with health problems, and those who live on their own. However, in the UK, thousands of people are doing their utmost to try and ensure nobody gets left behind, and it’s pretty heartwarming.

The approach of kind-hearted Brits is two-fold and incredibly organised. There’s the #viralkindness campaign, as well as mutual aid groups popping up on Facebook every day. Each of these consists of healthy individuals offering their time to run errands for those in need. The two work symbiotically and people are already beginning to benefit from them.

People are showing true compassion by posting simple slips of paper through doors (in the most sanitary way possible, of course).

WhatsApp groups are also emerging to support people who need it. Some are also helping people to find items like toilet paper and paracetamol — items that can prove hard to find in shops. They do this by alerting people to shops who now have re-stocked on necessities. Often they are used to urge others not to buy more than necessary, echoing the sentiments of major supermarkets and many residents in the UK.

In light of these uplifting attitudes by the good people of the UK, we have compiled a list of some the Facebook groups in each area in and around Manchester:
