A Young Volunteer blogs about lockdown

Lucy, a Young Volunteer on our Extraordinary Young People project talks in her words about the Coronavirus lockdown

The Lockdown starts from Monday 30th March 2020. I know it’s scary times, but I just wanted to keep everybody safe. My training has been postponed and I’m so gutted but I’m sure space staff will let me know when the Lockdown it’s over. I have been cooking, baking, arts & crafts and games because it shows how a good skills. I have been out for a local walks at the local area. I still speak one of my space workers just to make sure they alright. I’m still doing Proud2Be youth group online and social online to see people. Food in Community is not running at the moment but luckily I pick up the fruit and veg box also hopefully help out for sorting out the box of fruit and veg.

What have I learn this month so I do is studying Level 2 Youth Work Certificate, hopefully GCSEs Maths and English, when I was a school I failed my Maths so I had to do it again.

I miss everyone but it’s very difficult at the moment because it is a strange times all over the world. Everybody it’s looking forward when the Lockdown is over and then hopefully it gets back to normal.

There is an app called “zoom” because it’s good so I can the people’s faces and talk to each other. Last time, when I’m at Young People’s Progress Group but there is a app call “Hangouts” I’m trying to download and it’s hard to do it. “Zoom” it will be much better.

I do clapping at NHS and Key Workers also everyone supports NHS to encourage. They all work really hard so everyone wants to buy a food, medicine and takeaways if they need it.

I have being keeping busy at the moment because the offices, cafes, restaurants, shops and youth clubs are closed until further notice.

CoronavirusDue to the social distancing measures of Coronavirus not all of Lifeworks services are running as they usually do.

Our residential services, Robins and Sesame, continue to run and have provided a safe home for the residents. Unfortunately, we have had to stop the short stay service at Robins for the time being. Our specialist College was closed for the Easter holidays but has now re-opened for a small number of students. Community Projects’ in-person services have been put on hold but the team have been very creative, launching Safe-Space a new online platform to provide a much-needed service to young people who are feeling isolated at home.

We are still working our way through these times where there is uncertainty and we are responding to guidance and instruction as information is sent to us. We look forward to the time when we can re-instate all of our services but the safety and wellbeing of our service users, families and staff is our top priority always.

Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
