Weʼre raising £80,000 to To raise £80k in 80 days to support 16-24 year olds back to work or dealing with a mental health struggle due to the Coronavirus lockdown.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
It is clear that over the months to come the fall out from the Covid-19 lockdown and difficulties will hit the young hard. Young people will have lost their jobs or will find it hard to get one. On top of this an increased level of mental health struggles among young people could have a long term impact. It is important that we act now and create opportunities that we help young people build and live empowering lives
What will we do ?
Over the next year we will create clubs, groups and activities that will help individuals get closer to work and improve their mental health journey.
