Caring for Each Other During Covid – A Resource for Communities Responding to Harm
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
Sisters Uncut believe that learning how to support each other through harm is a continual process.
Mutual aid groups are currently building safe, non-hierarchical communities independent from the state and state services, such as the police and the Home Office across the country; and we know that domestic and sexual violence survivors will be part of these communities so we have put together suggestions to support people in these groups and beyond on helpful, survivor-centred support.
As we said in our statement on Covid-19; care work has always been devalued in this society because it doesn’t create profit; and it needs to be valued now more than ever. We must ensure no one is left behind; and this is only possible through accessibility, interdependence, collective action and commitment.
We have drawn up the below shorter resources and are in the process of finalising resources for survivors, and those supporting survivors. We will upload these to this page soon and a plain text version of these shorter resources can be found at the bottom of the page.
We will also be organising webinars for the wider network and if you are interested in attending or would like us to deliver something with your mutual aid group please email firstname.lastname@example.org. More details will be coming soon regarding the webinars.
