It’s been a tough year but we’re very proud of what’s been achieved and the huge progress so many of our young people have made despite the huge challenges brought about by the Covid-19 restrictions.
How we’ve helped during lockdown…
Mental health and wellbeing sessions
Advice and info appointments
Individual young people
Despite the absence of face to face work for most of the year, we have managed to provide targetted support for nearly 200 young people – and that doesn’t include the young people we worked with through outreach projects in Gillingham and Sherborne, the primary school counselling we’ve delivered as part of the Emotionally Connected Sherborne project (funded by Friends of the Yeatman Hospital) and the amazing film project we ran last summer.
Whilst more face-to-face work is happening, we remain mindful of restrictions and the constraints of working underneath a church with poor airflow.
We are still unable to restart our informal drop-in sessions but are busy planning some small group provision in the autumn so watch this space for details to be announced over the summer!
More details of our year’s work will be available in our Annual Report which will be available after our Annual General Meeting in September.
