Story

It's been a while since we did this running malarkey! We want to raise money to ensure that #YoungPeopleCan

Please sponsor us as it will REALLY help us get round!!!  

GMYN's work is vital for young people - here's why: 

Before the pandemic, one third of young people in the UK were lonely, half felt unready for work and half felt they didn't belong to their local community. Now, during this crisis, 80% of young people with a history of mental ill health have said that the current situation is making them feel worse.

At GMYN, the key focus is supporting young people with experience of the care system and special educational needs and disabilities to feel safe, supported and cared for but, as charities and statutory services respond to the pandemic, the support available for these young people has suddenly changed and reduced. But they now need this support more than ever. Any support you can offer is helpful. 

Especially this year when fundraising has been SO tough, it would be amazing if you can make a donation. 

Thank you.
