National Lottery Awards £420,000 to help Black Country Children Rebound from Lockdown Anxiety

Children struggling to readjust to life after Covid-19 and life under lockdown will now get specialist care after a £421,180 grant from the National Lottery.

SinglePoint Plus in Oldbury, Dorothy Parkes Centre, Smethwick and Breathing Space Therapeutic Services at Baggeridge Country Park in South Staffordshire were awarded the money from The National Lottery Partnerships Fund.

The three organisations will deliver Rewire, a recovery project to support local children and families.

Rewire offers targeted and open access community services aimed at building community resilience to enhance the wellbeing of local people. Rewire includes child and adult counselling, family support services, peer support and youth clubs and therapeutic woodland activities.

SinglePoint manager Lisa Harrison has noticed how the pandemic and its consequences impacted local people in a variety of ways including increased anxiety and lower motivation to get involved in activities.
