Since the pandemic began one in five young people have experienced suicidal thoughts (Youth Index 2021), meaning more young people than ever will need new or additional mental health support (Outward Bound Trust 2021). These statistics are amplified during Christmas time, where there is extra pressure on many of our young members to be ‘happy’.
However, the reality of Christmas for many of our young members is very different, with many experiencing loneliness or depression. Moreover, the spike in loss of jobs following the pandemic means many of our young members will be living in deprivation, making the Christmas period a particularly hard time.
Now more than ever the young people in Croydon need a happy Christmas day to look forward to.
In response to this, we’re urgently seeking the support of individuals, groups, and businesses who can join us in giving young people in Croydon the Christmas they deserve and won’t forget.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the following sponsors for donating to our Christmas Appeal – helping us give the young people in Croydon the Christmas they so deserve.
We wouldn’t be able to continue supporting the young people in Croydon without your ongoing support, thank you.
