Glasgow group supports the local community during COVID-19

Section: The ALLIANCEType: Case Study

A Facebook group has been set up to respond to COVID-19 bringing a local community together to support one another through the pandemic.

In one of our latest ALLIANCE Live and Community in Action pieces we speak to Rhona Sweeting, the creator and admin of the Facebook Group “Southside Self Isolation Supporters”, a group which has brought the community of Glasgow Southside together to support one another in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Rhona tells us about the group and what inspired her to create it, how the community has responded and what her advice would be to others looking to mobilise their local community via social media and Facebook Groups.

To watch our interview with Rhona on the work of the group you can see it our YouTube channel (this link will take you away from our website).
