Throughout the pandemic, Inspire Youth distributed over 4,000 food parcels across Tyne & Wear. “One of my most memorable moments working with Inspire Youth was providing food parcels to families across Newcastle,” recalls senior play and youth leader Dillon Wilson.
The PPE donation enabled the charity to safely continue youth clubs on a smaller scale of 15 young people.
“We needed PPE, so with the help of Charities Buying Group we were able to give the kids a fantastic summer before another lockdown,” explains senior play and youth leader Dillon Wilson.
Once restrictions ease the charity is excited to welcome the youth of Tyne & Wear back into centres for a long overdue catch-up. With plans to provide more activities and specialised mentoring programmes.
