With most places and services experiencing lock-down and limit in services, Fearless Youth Association (FYA) distributed packs of food over the Easter weekend to 43 families, youths and young people across Nottingham.

Bread, vegetables, canned food and Easter eggs made the bulk of the items distributes. Mobile phone and internet data top-up were also given to some of the most desperate families in Radford, St Anne’s, Sneinton and Lenton areas.

 

We are also supporting young people with virtual training, job applications and accessing support in the city.

Despite these supplies, we are receiving increasing requests for resources to support the young people to engagement and lead active lifestyles.

Dan, one of the young who uses FYA studios said that, “We are miss a chance to come out and work in the Basement studio or just link up with our friends. It is sometimes maddening staying with family at home, but I guess it is for our own good.”

The young people and some families are asking for resources to keep their young people busy and productive and to reduce conflicts in small confirmed spaces.

FYA, in conjunction with Nottingham Covid-19 support network are appealing for help with creative materials including artistic resources and digital media materials.

“We are also looking to expand our ambassadors and mentoring programs and would love to hear from individuals and organisations interested in joining us in this work. We believe though the times are tough, many young people are busy looking for ways to better their lives and we are ready to support them any time.” Said Angela, the Manager of Fearless Youth Association.

For more information on youth support available or the ways in which you can engage with the youths on training, employment and “Safe Space”, please contact Angela on info@fyaonline.com or call 01157846670.
