COVID-19 has impacted both The Benjamin Foundation's staff and residents. A few young people have not adapted well to social distancing, leading to more staff support being required to help manage behaviour and support emotional well-being.
LandAid's £10,000 grant will go towards a Coronavirus Young Person's Fund, increased staffing costs and PPE.
The Benjamin Foundation supports over 2,500 people a year in Norfolk and Suffolk across a range of ages and through a variety of services and projects. Over half of these are under 25, including the youngest (2 years+) that are cared for in their nursery services.
