The effects of the pandemic have not been felt equally by all. 

Families across the country have been struggling to make ends meet and the most vulnerable and marginalised in society have been hit the hardest. Just under half of our frontline staff are supporting someone in or at risk of being in poverty. 

Sadly the likelihood of becoming critically ill and dying from Coronavirus is much higher for families from black or minority ethnic backgrounds. So these young people can be disproportionately affected by bereavement. Grief can be difficult to navigate, particularly for young people and especially during a pandemic.

Our dedicated project workers help young people navigate their feelings of loss or grief. We also help young people and families access support available to them - like benefits, or food banks - and equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to enter the workforce, through education, training and getting a job.

Help give vulnerable children and families the support they need during this crisis.

£8 a month could help pay for mentoring sessions for a young person leaving care, giving them the practical skills to live independently - like finding a safe place to live or a job
