We are a small collective of people from around Lambeth. Because of the COVID pandemic we have kept most of our organising online, to keep one another safe, and allow people who are shielding or immunocompromised safe. We have an organising group chat, an email and this website. At the moment most of our decisions are made via this group chat, but we hope to bring decision making (for important or strategic issues) to the monthly coffee mornings to decentralise power and allow more people to participate. This will need to take into account those who are (for whatever reason) unable to make these meetings.
We have a weekly rota for answering our emails. These emails largely consist of people asking for support. To these we often signpost people to other people and groups who offer the support they are looking for. If we can, we offer help ourselves.
Each month (currently the first Saturday of the month) we host a Coffee Morning. You can find more about that here.
Each month (currently the last Saturday of the month) we open up our Solidarity Fund. You can find more about that here.
If you would like to be more involved in any of these things, please get in touch with us here.
Alternatively, set up your own crew based on mutual aid principles, or help out/join up with one of the other ace groups around the borough.
