Covid-19 Response Project
On the 9th September 2020, we delivered wellbeing packages to food banks within our community. This has enabled us to extend our reach in delivering vital Covid-19 wellbeing support to 500 vulnerable children and families living in poverty.
“It has never been more important to address children’s mental health. We are already seeing the effects of COVID-19 on the children in the communities where we work. It is vital that children are put at the heart of recovery plans. The North East is one of the most deprived areas in the UK, with many families living in poverty. Our focus with our wellbeing project, with funding from Tesco Bags of Help, was to reach out to those vulnerable families. We have now reached over 500 families with children ensuring the most vulnerable in our community have access to mental health advice and support amid this global crisis we are facing”.
