Ourside: Covid grant

The funding from Worcestershire Community Foundation (WCF) enabled Ourside Youth Centre to redesign their service provision and continue supporting the young people and families in the local community. Carly Elwell, chairman, said: “We understand that more than ever they need our support in times where they are not able to come to the centre to get it.”

Money from the grant has been used used to supply families of young people financially affected by coronavirus with vouchers or physical items such as: food, basic essentials, sanitary products, stationery and phone credit etc.
