Cardinal Hume’s young people are a high-risk group. Many of the team themselves have had to self-isolate, which has been a challenge for the centre. It expects these issues to only intensify over the coming months.
LandAid’s £9,830 grant will go to emergency staff costs in order to maintain 24-hour staffing to ther residential facility. This will ensure that the young people feel supported and cared for, both day and night.
This £2,400 phase two grant will be used to provide laptops for young people at the Cardinal Hume Centre to enable them to complete college work, make employment applications and to support any required self-isolation.
Cardinal Hume gives homeless young people, families in need and local people the support they need to realise their full potential. Cardinal Hume focuses on four areas of need: employment, housing, education and skills, and legal status.
