The impact of COVID-19 had been acute on YMCA East Surrey’s resident’s mental health. In particular, those with challenging behaviours linked to ADHD and OCD, and those who are not in education, employment and training were especially hit hard.

LandAid’s £9,250 grant provided technology that ensured their young people were able to continue with their workshops remotely, and enabled staff to provide more one-to-one support.
