About us

The idea for the group came from a post by Rhona Sweeting on the Battlefield Community Project group.

The Southside Self-Isolation Supporters group grew from just Battlefield to cover the whole of the southside in a matter of hours.

We’re so enormously proud of what we’ve all achieved together, fulfilling almost 250 requests from southsiders who needed someone to turn to, seeing these links blossom into wonderful friendships and ongoing support networks, as well as building an incredible community who have been there for each other throughout these most challenging times.

In light of decreasing requests for assistance we’ve decided to wind down the active support and matching aspect of Southside Self-Isolation Supporters, for now.

We’ll no longer be accepting any new support requests after 5pm on Friday 10th July.

If you have registered as a volunteer or street champion, we’ve sent you more information by email or you can view it here: https://bit.ly/ThankYouSouthside
