Shacklewell Mutual Aid Newsletter – 20 July 2020 – Phone line volunteers needed

We urgently need volunteers to help run the phone line. All you have to do is install and log in to Skype on your phone or computer and check the phone line for messages a few times a day. You then fill in a form that gets sent to dispatchers who will take care of the rest.

If you want to volunteers please email with your preferred day to cover (pick a day from Monday-Sunday) and if you can cover it every week or want to cover that day once a fortnight and alternate with someone else.

We’ll give you full training and there is a WhatsApp group for support and questions.
