Vulnerable families benefitting from Activity Packs delivered by Unique Voice over Half Term holidays

2021-02-24


As the pandemic continues to impact our daily lives, some families, especially those experiencing socio economic difficulties and multiple disadvantages will have found school holidays extra challenging.

So, over last week’s Half Term holiday period, Unique Voice delivered over 250 bespoke Stay at Home Activity Packs to vulnerable families across Bristol. The packs, which were introduced during the first lockdown last year, have been updated and improved and now have recyclable packaging. They focus on creativity in the home, mindfulness, and young people’s interests. Since the first lockdown was introduced, a total of 961 packs have been issued.

Under normal circumstances, Unique Voice deliver face to face holiday programmes for vulnerable children in a safe and creative environment, but with the COVID 19 restrictions, these are unable to go ahead.

Unique Voice have been providing free, targeted provision for children in Bristol for almost 10 years, and Astra Security have been a long-standing supporter, with their latest donation going towards the creation and delivery of the new Activity Packs.

Krystal Keeley, Director at Unique Voice said “COVID-19 continues to significantly impact Bristol’s communities. We aim to deliver as many packs as we can in areas of deprivation such as Hartcliffe, Withywood, Lockleaze, Lawrence Weston and Hillfields. These packs are supplying engaging activities to bring happiness and improved mental health and wellbeing.” Krystal went on to say, “ We are so grateful for the continued and ongoing support that Astra provides. It really does make a huge difference.”

Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security said “It’s such an important part of our ethos to support communities in this way and the work which Unique Voice does is amazing. They offer vital services to those families and children in Bristol who need it most. I wish them all the best in their ongoing fundraising efforts.”
