This summer, Baytree is participating in The Big Give and The Childhood Trust’s Champion for Children Match Fund to raise £5000 in just one week! These funds will be used to organise an extensive programme of activities, that will promote and maintain the wellbeing of girls and young women, whose vulnerability has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis.
Many girls in our community have been hard hit by the COVID-19 crisis, which has further contributed to their vulnerability and isolation. Pandemic lockdowns have caused a soar in child poverty. With an increase in the loss of jobs, families have struggled to keep their children fed and homes warm.
The pandemic has also taken a negative toll on mental health as well as seeing a 25% rise in domestic abuse calls. For many migrant families, livelihoods have been threatened as they struggle to access benefits, living in fear for their immigration status.
With the aim of £5000, the funds raised from this campaign will be doubled and allow the Baytree Centre to organise an extensive programme of activities that will promote and maintain the wellbeing of girls and young women, many of whom have been made further vulnerable due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The summer will be great for many of us as we enjoy our freedom, but for some girls without means, it may be a terrible time of boredom. We will provide either a remote or face-to-face programme of activities that will allow the girls to socially connect, stay positive, motivated, and have fun.
From 12pm on Tuesday 14th June to 12pm Tuesday 21st June, ALL donations made to the Baytree Centre will be DOUBLED!
We hope you can help support us in our mission to make the summer fun for the young girls and women of Lambeth.
