This is really, really important.
We believe it is crucial for young people that we provide some form of normality through the COVID-19 outbreak.
As you’ll know, we’ve had to take the devastating decision to close our evening delivery. From Friday 20th March we will be providing the following:
VIRTUAL MUSIC LESSONS/JAMS – Music lessons/jams get togethers will happen on Monday and Thursdays from 7pm till 9pm and Wednesdays 6pm till 8pm. This will be through Facebook live and you will be able to choose which musician you hook up with – details will be on our Livewire members support page.
SUPPORT – ANY young person local to us that is in need of emotional support can TXT 07398 091507, giving –
A STAFF MEMBER’S NAME, IF YOU WANT TO TALK TO SOMEONE SPECIFIC
We will then get back to you.
VIRTUAL LIVEWIRE – On MONDAYS and THURSDAYS there will be Youth Workers and Counsellors able to chat between 7pm and 9pm and on WEDNESDAYS 6pm till 8pm on our Livewire members support page. This will include regular updates and supports via Facebook live from Andy Rance and Elaine At Livewire.
TELEPHONE SUPPORT – On MONDAYS – WEDNESDAYS – FRIDAYS, Andy Rance will be available on 07983 806736 between 10am and 12pm. On a TUESDAY and THURSDAY, Elaine At Livewire will be available on 07398 620705 between 10am and 12pm.
If anyone has any other ideas that may help us support young people virtually, please email or message Andy.
