COVID-19 had a huge impact on Giroscope’s community. Its residents were experiencing stress and anxiety due to the pandemic, and were finding it difficult to remain resilient as this is not a situation they ever experienced before and therefore did not have the skills to cope with it.
LandAid’s £8,318 grant delivered emergency support provision for their young people. This included food parcels, toiletries and counselling sessions. These funds also covered the cost of internet connection for two 4 bed LandAid properties and an additional property for a young person in need of accommodation.
