COVID-19 – Creative Box: Family Support by Youth Action

Youth Action are pleased to announce a new community initiative for local children in need.

During the Coronavirus lockdown, there has been an immense pressure on local families both in terms of food, medicine as well as education materials.

At Youth Action we believe there has been an adverse impact on children’s education, and as part of this our new project – the Creative Box, is providing a free box of new stationary and arts materials, to local children who are on Free School Meals from Blackburn with Darwen in order for them to continue their home learning.

If you know any family on Free School Meals (or on Universal Credit) please ask them to complete this brief online form to request a box:

Some suggested wording for an SMS/ email to selected parents:
