Covid-19 has caused panic and fear across the world. For some of the young people and families supported by The Door, their fragile mental health status prior to Covid-19 is being exacerbated in the current climate; many are feeling out of control and more anxious about their lives.
While we are seeing demand for our services grow we are also losing £500 every working day in income as a result of lockdown. Please donate today to help The Door reach every young person and family that needs our support, especially at this most challenging of times.
If you are a new donor, The Door will receive match funding on donations over £500 (more details on our website)
