Relief Hub for families of COVID-19 victims

Summary

Covid-19 has had a tremendous impact on people ranging from children, young people, adults, parents and the elderly, some of whom have lost a spouse, family member or loved one. Nurturing Foundations plans to provide a hub where children will have access to books and STEM materials to promote their creativity and innovation and also provide support, information and resources to adults and families of the victims of the pandemic ensuring that they live happier and healthier lives going forward.

Challenge

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, families of victims continue to face the devastating impact it has on them, friends, communities which has a long continuing effect into the future. Additionally, the financial impact of job loss, losing a family member or no longer having access to healthy meals, school closures with national restrictions and lockdowns have meant that people experience various forms of lack and isolation from friends and family members.

Solution

Our solution aims to support families of victims with improved access to food, opportunities, supply of books for literacy services and STEM materials to inspire children to start thinking about innovations and creativity, enhance academic attainment of students, improve mental health and reduce isolation generally. We want to rent out a supervised space which will give families the opportunity to learn life skills and promote collaboration which are skills needed for 21st century success.

Long-Term Impact

Since our solutions involve members of the community coming together, this will improve long-term community cohesion for families of victims in Manchester. Providing children with books and STEM materials will enhance their critical thinking and ongoing academic achievement. Supporting the families affected with food items, basic needs and engaging them in a range of activities and skills will help improve their mental health thereby tackling the issues head on helping to build up the community
