"We recognise that it is an extremely difficult time for all of you at the moment, there are many challenges, practically and emotionally.
Boredom and frustration will be at record heights but particularly hard for children and young people who like to be outside, simply playing together or socialising with friends. It is important that you stay at home to minimise the risk of the Covid -19 virus spreading. We will be sending out a variety of useful information sources, hints, tips and ideas how to keep sane in the coming days & weeks."
The Youth Action Project is still operating to support young people but has widened it's priority from primarily youth work by adding assistance to families and vulnerable people who are unable to access food. We are working with agencies such as West Lothian Foodbank, Almond Housing, WL Council, West Calder CDT and others to ensure donations are collected and food parcels made up. These will include fresh homemade meals, thanks to our wonderful cook Kathleen, then distributed to identified vulnerable people throughout West Lothian. Providing we have enough produce, our Community Fridge at Riverside Community Wing, Craigshill, Livingston is open on Thursdays and Fridays 9.30-12.30 - we will be complying with Government guidelines in relation to social distancing.
In addition to this work we will be offering a phone line support for young people, parents and carers - keep checking in and details of this support will follow, along with any other useful information.
Wishing you all the very best and stay safe.
