YMCA Cornwall – COVID-19 Emergency Fund

YMCA Cornwall provides safe and secure accommodation for young people who have experienced family breakdown, violence and social exclusion, putting them at risk of homelessness.

Cornwall, UK

The young people YMCA Cornwall supports are generally unable to cope with living independently and many are struggling with depression and crippling anxiety. They were unable to cope with daily life and had not developed coping mechanisms to deal with stressful situations, such as the new challenges and restrictions created by COVID-19.

LandAid’s £10,000 grant provided support, food and essential items for 42 young people for three months.
