Our fundraising target £80k
Raise £80k in 80 days to support 16-24 year olds back to work or dealing with a mental health struggle due to the Coronavirus lockdown.
It is clear that over the months to come the fall out from the Covid-19 lockdown and difficulties will hit the young hard. Young people will have lost their jobs or will find it hard to get one. On top of this an increased level of mental health struggles among young people could have a long term impact. It is important that we act now and create opportunities that we help young people build and live empowering lives.
What will we do
Over the next year we will create clubs, groups and activities that will help individuals get closer to work and improve their mental health journey. Our stats show you that we are very good at what we do.
