At Befriend a Child we are aware how tough it’s been for families during COVID-19, and we wanted to help in any way we could.

In June 2021 and with thanks to funding from Fairer Aberdeen Fund we were able to assist families who were struggling and could do with some extra help at this time. We provided care packages, and were able to sign post families to other organisations who can advise or help.

We sent out 221 care packages which included toiletries, cleaning products, sanitary products, home schooling /homework packs and arts and crafts for the kids. We also set aside a small budget for warm clothes for them.

We were delighted to be able to support so many local children, young people and their families. We continue to look for ways where we can support as many families as possible.
