Pan-London Covid-19 Mutual Aid Groups

Covid-19 Mutual Aid UK is “a group of volunteers supporting local community groups organising mutual aid throughout the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK.” They have a Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group listings page but it is very tricky to use and has quite a few broken links. Still worth a visit.

Don’t worry about GDPR issues

Keep reading comments from people who want to do good coronavirus mutual aid group things but hesitate because they are worried about breaking GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

This from Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health & Social Care and MP for West Suffolk.

“Public information: GDPR does not inhibit use of data for coronavirus response. GDPR has a clause excepting work in the overwhelming public interest. No one should constrain work on responding to coronavirus due to data protection laws. We are all having to give up some of our liberties; rights under GDPR have always been balanced against other public interests.”


So you can stop worrying about GDPR and just get on with what you are doing. Good luck!
