This local helpline closed on 28th August, the group is currently developing a new phase of activities. If people want to get involved they can get in touch.
Ardwick and Longsight Mutual Aid Group was set up by residents from the neighbourhood including those from the west Gorton estate, and its primary focus is to ensure that people can access food parcels or hot meals to keep them fed during the COVID-19 crisis. The group is led by local residents for local residents, and they run a local support helpline.
Volunteers take calls, provide support and refer to other agencies. Volunteer deliverers also support with the distribution of food and hot meals.
