The majority of YMCA Lincolnshire’s beneficiaries had multiple and complex needs and witnessed an increase in anxiety levels and general decline in mental health as people were asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines.

LandAid’s £9,788 grant provided technology for the young people, so they had access to entertainment and were able to stay connected with their support network. This grant also covered food, personal care and cleaning packs, as well as mindfulness packages.
