The future of mutual aid: translating learning into policy and practice
April 26 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
From The ESA and MoVE team:
Last year, the MoVE team carried out research in England and Wales to understand what made mutual aid groups so distinctive and what we can learn from their success in responding to the pandemic. We’re about to publish the findings of this work in a new report – Communities are doing it for themselves: lessons from the mutual aid experience. This will be available on Tuesday 12th April and we’ll be in touch then to share it with you. In the meantime, check out our latest blog post: Building power or fighting fires: what role for mutual aid in the latest cost-of-living crisis?
We are now focused upon moving this learning into policy and practice. We recently brought mutual aid groups together again to revisit the findings and recommendations in light of more recent events and developments. In the context of a growing cost-of-living crisis, the current challenges pose important questions regarding the role of informal community groups and what policymakers and practitioners can do to support.
To explore this, we’re bringing together a panel of people who’ve been closely involved with mutual aid:
- Katya Pursall, 10GM and Convener of GM Mutual Aid Network
- Alice Robson, Community Partnerships Manager, Islington Borough Council
… and more to be confirmed!
We will begin by sharing the headline recommendations from the research, before hearing from our panel about what they’re doing to drive forward and support the work of mutual aid. We will then open up for a Q&A with the panel.
