In the YMCA we understand the impact COVID-19 has had among our children & young people and their communities. Through speaking to young people we hear of the adverse effects this pandemic has had on peer relationships and upon their mental health and wellbeing.
In response, the Kickstart project is designed to support young people during and post COVID-19 as we aim to implement supportive structures back within the lives of children and young people. This project comes in 3 elements:
