Our Response to COVID19

Why we need your help

We need your help....

COVID19 and lockdown has had an enormous effect on the lives of people in the UK. The effect of COVID19 on young people in prison is profound. But imagine what the effect is on some of the most vulnerable in our society. Young people in prison.

By donating you will help us to support people still in custody and upon release with mentoring engagement.

[b]How does Coronavirus affect prisons?

Prisons are currently locked down with visits from family halted and activities severely curtailed. You can imagine how restrictive and mentally challenging this may be for many young people in prison.

How has this affected us and what is our response?

We have rightly had to halt much of our traditional in person delivery, reducing support to telephone based mentoring sessions and supporting individuals remotely where we can.

Effect on the Charity?

We have unfortunately had to postpone 3 key annual fundraising events that we had planned for May and June, this will have a financial effect on us in the long run. We have also furloughed three staff in an effort to maintain financial sustainability. We believe, however, we can overcome the current situation.

Why we need your help?.....Our Plan for the future

This is uncharted territory for those in prison and being released from custody. We expect that the current mental health crisis in our prisons will be exacerbated. We believe it is in everyone's interest that young people are supported to move away from crime on release. So we are planning to have a bolder impact when restrictions are lifted and we are fully able to support young people in and leaving custody again.

How can you help?

We are setting an ambitious target to raise £10,000 to respond in the aftermath of this crisis. This will fund one of our mentors to operate for 4 months, once normal delivery resumes. This amount also covers the cost of 3 coaches delivering sport to young people Part Time over the same period.
