Laptops Enable Counselling in Covid-19 Lockdown

Youth in Romsey received a grant of £1,137 within two days of applying to HIWCF for emergency funding, to enable confidential counselling to continue across the Test Valley area during lockdown, through the purchase of IT equipment.

“Thanks to the grant we were able to purchase IT and phone equipment enabling us to be able to work from home, providing counselling, one-to-one support and help with school homework to a large number of young people. Having these resources has enabled us to keep our waiting lists to manageable levels and provide support on a timely basis. It has truly made a difference to our organisation, thank you.”
