Published on January 2, 2021 by Arthur's Hill Mutual Aid

In the week before Christmas we distributed over 500 kg of food from our communal store + since setting up the solidarity fund we have redistributed 235 grants of £30 each. As lockdown continues, we know it'll be even more ...


The Arthur's Hill Solidarity fund aims to redistribute funds within Arthurs Hill and provides assistance to Arthur's Hill residents who are struggling financially as a result of COVID-19.  We recognise that there are big differences in financial security across Arthurs Hill, Newcastle and the UK more broadly, and that some people are affected significantly more than others by the pandemic and its consequences. We also recognise that forms of support available through state services and charities can discriminate against certain groups and can be based in conditions which make it very hard for certain people to claim, or can lead to feelings of shame.

This fund can be used for anything, there is neither judgement nor is there an obligation to pay back the money. This is run in direct accordance with principles of mutual aid - “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need”.

You can apply for funds of up to £30 per application (to be reviewed depending on available funds). As there has been such high demand, for now people can apply for a grant once a month. When funds are low we'll prioritise new applications and set up a waiting list for repeat applications. 

If you would like to request money from the fund you can apply directly by going to 'submit expense', and 'reimbursement' . You will need to provide your name and the initial of your surname and upload a proof of address as a 'receipt'. The address will not show publicly.

If you are unhoused and do not have a postcode or do not have a bank account please get in touch - this is not a barrier to accessing the fund. You can email, or call 0191 6911 363 (leave a voicemail and we'll get back to you.

The fund releases money every Monday evening, Wednesday evening and Thursday evening. Please take this into account when you apply for funds, as they may not be released immediately.
