We are currently receiving around 50 calls per week and helping over 20 people per week.
We try to direct essential food enquires to the Flying Fish and Londis who are both offering a local delivery service. However, we have set up an emergency temporary food bank for those in need during the Covid – 19 crisis.

_____Newhaven Covid-19 mutual aid group___
find us on Facebook
The Covid-19 Mutual Aid Group was created to service the Newhaven community through the global pandemic by helping the vulnerable and needy residents that live amongst us.
They have 10 staff , admin and moderators who have their own
allocated sections to cover as well as having another 30 listed volunteers. Their team sent 100’s of leaflets out through letterboxes in the community offering services such as shopping , picking up prescriptions, or a friendly chat on the phone.
They also organise, collect and distribute donations of food for Newhaven Baptist Church Food bank. The group is updated with all the latest information onshop opening times and provides contact numbers for several organisations.
They speak regularly with neighbouring mutual aid groups , council sectors and local MP via Zoom meetings , emails, messenger and via the page.
The team is very proud of what they have achieved so far and the group continues to grow in numbers and have become one big extended family , all trying to do their bit and support the community through this worrying , stressful time .
Without the selfless acts of donations from local businesses , pubs, shops and members of the community with their time , the team wouldn’t have been able to have achieved all they have.
Helping the community is what they do best and is what has made the
group such a success.
