COVID-19 had a profound effect on the young people Accumulate support. They were not only at an increased risk of infection, but they also suffered from complex mental health issues. Accumulate had to halt all of its workshops, and although staff kept in virtual contact with their participants, their young people struggled.

LandAid’s £6,780 grant delivered Accumulate’s Art Kits, participation in this creative learning activity to improve the well-being of those struggling with social isolation, loneliness and boredom.
