The impact of COVID-19 has been acute on YMCA East Surrey’s resident's mental health. In particular, those with challenging behaviours linked to ADHD and OCH, and those who are not in education, employment and training have been especially hit hard.
LandAid’s £9,250 grant will provide technology that will ensure their young people are able to continue with their workshops remotely, and enable staff to provide more one-to-one support.
YMCA East Surrey supports the most vulnerable people in the local community and has been helping them to develop to their full potential for 150 years. It offers a wide range of services to meet their needs including supported housing, youth work, mental health counselling, children’s playschemes, sport and fitness and volunteering.
