COVID-19 has brought health inequalities into sharp focus. People living in the most disadvantaged areas are at risk of more severe outcomes if they contract the virus due to higher levels of existing poor health. They are more likely to contract the virus due to increased risk of exposure and there is a much larger social and economic impact in these communities.
Around 1 in 4 children in Scotland were already living in poverty (Source: Scottish Government) but numbers are likely to be far greater over the coming months. Growing up in poverty has far reaching social, psychological and physical effects on the lives of children and young people.
With your help, we can support more families and individuals. We offer healthy, dignified food provision, food and health education and training opportunities for young people living in disadvantage.
Your donation, however small can help provide food for a family struggling with food insecurity, help buy simple cooking equipment for those that have none and provide one-to-one family support to help ensure all our children have the opportunity to grow into healthy adults.
We need your support; everyone can help make a difference.
We accept donations via Paypal, who process all donations received. Please note, you do not need a Paypal account to donate, even if you’re using a card.
