by Tracy Pike in Llanelli, Wales, United Kingdom

We did it
On 22nd April 2020 we successfully raised £1,050 ( + est. £175.00 Gift Aid ) with 40 supporters in 49 days

What we are experiencing as a nation is loss. Jobs, time with friends and loss of loved ones. We will help people understand the process.

New stretch target

If we reach our stretch target of £20,000 we will be able to move premises to a larger unit nearer to the  natural local  facilities .We want to expand our premises and services to reach to more individuals as well as expand our pool of Volunteer Wellbeing Mentors .

As  well as providing the right services , facilities and resources that help to build  resilience and infrastructure to support people to access them 

CYCA provides hope, support and guidance to families experiencing trauma. This new world  families are faced with, will be the most challenging they have ever faced . 

Children at risk are now more at risk .Families who were struggling before this virus hit are now at breaking point . Loss is everywhere . We will also deliver Bereavement support/Counselling  for those who wont be able to say goodbye to a loved one taken by this Virus.

We have transformed the way in which we deliver our  services  We are now delivering online support , Wellness training and Counselling  for those in most need .This will include those in frontline services 

Please support us to support those most in need during this unprecedented time .

We never give up on any family and recognise each individual has different needs.

 CYCA have supported thousands of families over the years and are celebrating 40 years in existence in 2020. Our CEO Tracy Pike received an MBE in 2018 for services to children.

 Some of our work so far

I have worked with CYCA for the last nine years. The school that I run is in a severely deprived community with very complex issues relating to poverty, domestic violence, family breakdown and substance misuse. The children are subject to a myriad of complicated issues  and are  emotionally challenged. CYCA have provided training for my staff, workshops for the parents and are working directly with families in my school in the school day. They have been a god send in supporting our work. Previous services we used are no longer available for dealing with the growing mental health problems these children are experiencing. I feel having worked for eleven years in this community the relationship that I have developed with CYCA has enabled to make a significant difference to many lives.

 The range of services and the interventions provided by CYCA will make our school a better place for the children of this community.

This funding means that children and families in one of the most deprived wards in Wales will receive essential well-being support. CYCA have outgrown their current premises. In order to be in a position to help more children and families a move is essential. 

It is what it is at the moment we can not control the virus BUT WE CAN CONTROL the way we respond to it, humour is very useful Today focus on what our lives may
