Due to lockdown measures, Aspire Oxford saw an increase in the financial needs of its young people. One of its young people was evicted twice during the pandemic.

LandAid’s £8,000 grant helped the Aspire team provide direct financial assistance to their young people who were particularly vulnerable. The grant went to paying rent arrears which may have prevented a young person from securing permanent housing, as well as to cover materials to enable young people to engage in activities which will kept them active and well.
