The Coronavirus pandemic is affecting us all in some shape or form, and as a small organisation, we don’t have substantial resources to support those whose lives and livelihoods are under threat.  But, as Angela Merkel once said: “A good compromise is one where everybody makes a contribution.”  Here is our contribution, albeit a small one.  We’ve teamed up with our chums at Northern Narratives to collate useful information being shared on other platforms.  If you’re looking for support or something to do during self-isolation or simply something uplifting, these sites may help.

We’ll be updating the lists daily and if you have any suggestions, do get in touch hello@hundredheroines.org.
