COVID-19 had a huge impact on Whitehaven’s service. It found it extremely difficult to look after its young people in the difficult time, as they were all confined to their rooms. Both their staff and residents were very anxious at this time.
LandAid’s £9,670 grant enabled Whitehaven to continue to provide its support services, and allowed its staff access to PPE to maintain their safety.
This £20,000 phase two grant helped repurpose and improve the kitchen area and laundry room at Whitehaven Community Trust. The grant also enabled a large laundry room next to the kitchen to be turned into a large dining area with seating so that family teas and arts and craft activities could re-start with social distancing.
