Team Around the Tenancy News

Jun 3, 2020

TGP Cymru’s Team Around the Tenancy launched the COVID-19 Combatting Isolation Service on 7th April 2020 after securing £5k of funding from Crisis UK. 

This service is being provided across North Wales for care experienced young people aged 18-25.  

The Crisis UK funding is being used to buy mobile phones, tablets and Netflix vouchers for the young people. Once the young people receive the items the team will help them set up any relevant apps needed to ensure they can access their support network.  The team will contact the young people weekly as a minimum, to ensure that they have all the basics they need such as food, toiletries and money. If they do have a need, the team will help the young people liaise with organisations or if this isn’t possible or they face difficulties, will advocate on their behalf.

We were also successful in securing £16.6k from the Steve Morgan Foundation, which will fund project facilitation, kits for online art and cookery sessions for up to 150 young people, and to support the delivery of an Agored Cymru qualification.
