CITYMATTERS.LONDON September 2020 | Page 21 SOCIAL subscribe to our newsletter at citymatters.london City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charity funder, has granted £250,000 over five years to Caxton Youth Organisation, which works with young people from across Westminster. Founded in 1948, the charity provides social activities and practical support to young people from its clubhouse base in Victoria, as well as outdoor activities and trips. The grant will fund a dedicated youth worker providing one-on-one support to help young people whose mental health has been affected by the lockdown improve their confidence and cope with challenges such as expressing feelings and communicating with others. Dhruv Patel, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s City Bridge Trust Committee, said: “Young people with learning disabilities often feel quite isolated and that’s something that for many has been heightened during the lockdown, so this funding should make a real difference at a time when it’s needed most. “This scheme will help young people manage issues such as stress and anxiety and give them the confidence to do more things for themselves, as well as boosting their educational and career prospects.” The scheme will be based on the ‘five ways to wellbeing’ model for good mental health, which focuses on connecting with other people, getting physically active, being mindful, learning new skills and helping others. Rose Swainston, Caxton Youth Organisation head of development, said: “Research shows people with disabilities are much more likely to feel anxious about the impact of coronavirus on their lives than those who are non-disabled, so this funding is crucial in supporting our members to manage their wellbeing and cope better with stress. “With this funding, we can support young people to build their own social and emotional toolkits based on the five ways to wellbeing, opening up the conversation of mental health through Covid-19 and beyond.” Meanwhile, a food redistribution charity which has seen demand ‘skyrocket’ during the coronavirus crisis has also received a timely cash boost. FareShare London, which takes surplus supermarket food and delivers it to charities and community groups to turn into meals, has been given £376,000 from the City Bridge Trust. Operating from a warehouse in Deptford, the charity delivered a whopping 420 tonnes of food in July – an eight-fold increase on levels before the pandemic. The funding will help FareShare London double the size of its operation in the capital by 2024, working with frontline charities and community groups to ensure vulnerable people can access quality, nutritious surplus food. Mr Patel said: “Even in normal circumstances, FareShare and its army of dedicated volunteers do a fantastic job of taking food which is perfectly good to eat, but would otherwise be thrown away and distributing it to those in need. “The way in which it has responded to skyrocketing demand for affordable food during the crisis has been truly inspirational, and this funding will enable it to help even more Londoners in the aftermath of the pandemic, and in the years to come.” FareShare, which counts Manchester United footballer Marcus Rashford among its supporters, joined with charities City Harvest and The Felix Project to set up the London Food Alliance, delivering to food hubs set up in all London boroughs to help those in need during the pandemic. The City Bridge Trust cash over five years will fund a development manager tasked with more than doubling the 224 organisations FareShare serves, which include schools, homeless shelters and lunch clubs for older people. Rachel Ledwith, FareShare London CEO, said: “Since coronavirus lockdown measures were introduced, we have distributed over 1,000 tonnes of food to vulnerable people and those on low incomes across London, and in June delivered eight times as much as during the same month last year. “At a time when demand for our service has soared across the UK and especially in London, this funding from City Bridge Trust could not have come at a more crucial time and we are grateful for this vital support.” HELPING HAND FROM CBT MARCUS RASHFORD: Image by Oleg Bkhambri (CC)
