It’s been a challenging few months in NSW and more so for Western Sydney, with COVID restrictions keeping us separated from our friends and family. While it’s taken its toll on all of us, the impact on people with disability has been significant, especially young adults who rely on a consistent routine.
Sadly since June, 4 out of 5 young adults with disability have reached out for extra support from Northcott because of distress and anxiety. With their regular routines disrupted, many didn’t understand what was happening around them. The need to stay at home meant that many young adults lost their connection to the outside world, and the friends that they relied on.
Most of us will bounce back, but these young adults need extra support.
Northcott’s Giving Day is an opportunity to make a difference, raising vital funds to support these young people to reengage with the outside world and rebuild their confidence.
Will you and your team join in? Funds raised will help Northcott provide the extras that can make all the difference, such as purchasing sensory resources, and making recreational activities more accessible for many.
Your generosity will also provide families in need crisis respite support so they can have a break from caring duties, while knowing that their loved ones are well looked after.
Thanks to our Matching Hero’s, every dollar donated until 30 November will be doubled, so your gift will go even further.
Let’s see what YOU can do to make wellbeing a priority and bring back joy and serious fun to young people with disability.
