COVID-19 has had a considerable impact on the outreach and residential services of The Wallich. Services have been adapted to ensure young people are kept safe and critical services are able to continue. The Wallich anticipates these changes will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
LandAid’s £9,144 grant will fund additional staffing costs to provide emergency cover at projects where they are staff shortages due to COVID-19. This will also cover PPE to equip 350 staff as well as weekly deep cleans, particularly in projects where there have been confirmed cases of COVID-19.
The Wallich believes in a Wales where people stand together to provide hope support, and solutions to end homelessness. It is tireless in their commitment to achieving this vision alongside staff, partner agencies, and most importantly alongside the people it supports.
