COVID-19 has had a huge impact on Giroscope’s community. Its residents are experiencing stress and anxiety due to the pandemic, and are finding it difficult to remain resilient as this is not a situation they ever experienced before and therefore do not have the skills to cope with it. Giroscope predicts that they will face the consequences of this crisis for at least three months more.
LandAid’s £8,318 grant will deliver emergency support provision for their young people. This includes food parcels, toiletries and counselling sessions. These funds will also cover the cost of internet connection for two 4 bed LandAid properties and an additional property for a young person in need of accommodation.
Giroscope is a housing project based in west Hull. It believes that everyone is entitled to somewhere to call their home, everyone should have access to meaningful work. No one should feel isolated from their community due to poverty, homelessness or prejudice.
