Fylde Coast YMCA – COVID-19 Emergency Fund

As a result of COVID-19, Fylde Coast YMCA saw a huge impact on its young people. Many of them were on a low income, had been furloughed or on zero-hour contracts and were unable to pay for the essentials such as rent and food. They also suffered from mental health issues, and Fylde Coast YMCA had seen an increase in demand for counselling support.

LandAid’s £8,000 helped deliver remote housing support clinics, a tenant’s emergency bursary fund and covered household costs such as electric, gas and food.
