The 87 young people City YMCA London supports are extremely vulnerable. As a result of COVID-19, staff at City YMCA London were not able to put a hand on their shoulder like they are normally able to. They were having to support their young people at a distance, at a time where they are most nervous and afraid.
LandAid’s £10,000 grant provided technology such as Zoom to ensure its young people remain supported. These funds also allowed City YMCA London to undertake a deep anti-bacterial clean once a month, which helped reduce the spread of the virus.
