As a result of COVID-19, YMCA Glenrothes operated at a critical level. To overcome social distancing guidelines, Glenrothes continued to provide regular telephone support to their users. Its community hub which provides support such as foodbank referrals had been forced to shut their doors for the safety of its staff and the general public.

LandAid’s £9,653 grant enabled YMCA Glenrothe’s to continue to provide its support services to its young people. Thisalso included PPE, food parcels and mobile phone top ups.
