💫UCA Student Union have launched a Mutual Aid scheme to connect students seeking support while self-isolating to volunteers wishing to help those in their UCA community. A mutual aid group is a volunteer-based initiative where groups of people in a particular area join together to support one another, meeting vital community needs without the help of official bodies. They do so in a way that prioritises those who are most vulnerable or otherwise unable to access help through regular channels. Volunteers are needed to support vulnerable students starting at UCA through the Covid-19 pandemic, deliver essential necessities and run errands to self-isolating students and support student wellbeing through providing a friendly ear and some emotional support to students who are self isolating or finding the pandemic overwhelming.
