St. George’s Crypt immediately changed the way its service is delivered due to COVID-19. Its health and well-being sessions have been on hold indefinitely and its lunch service has had to change in order to comply with social distancing rules. The most difficult challenge St. George’s Crypt has faced is being able to continue support the 20 young men who are going through addiction recovery but cannot attend therapeutic group sessions.
LandAid’s £10,000 grant will go towards St, George’s Crypt cleaning services, which are essential to keeping their services running. This will also cover personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves and aprons to all staff and residents.
St, George’s Crypt works with homeless and vulnerable adults and young people. The Crypt provides immediate support in terms of temporary emergency accommodation, three meals a day, clothing and shower facilities.
