How this cause brings people in the community together
The Covid pandemic has had multiple effects on the lives of young people. They have the worry for family members, change of routine with school closures and sports clubs shutting, and a feeling of isolation and loneliness. Young people already living with mental health conditions have worsened. The hub will bring those young people together socially and will focus on their recovery using exercise.
