Who We Are?
Maxlife is based in an area with existing deprivation issues which are being exacerbated by the Covid-19 crisis. Many Households are benefit dependant or in insecure employment. We can offer support to young people suffering from the effects of isolation, stress and very real concerns about the danger of the virus and its impact.
Our small team of dedicated part time staff and volunteers are working tirelessly in offering support to our young people and their families especially those most vulnerable. They have had to adjust their way of working to give as best a service they can in these most trying of times, often going beyond their normal duties but without complaint.
What We Are Doing?
Part of our approach to our work is in using food as a social tool, involving young people in the preparation and cooking, devising recipes and menus. Due to the lockdown restrictions we are having to be more inventive and using video, social media, Max-Zine newsletter to reach our young people.
Our Project reaches out to those young people and their families in our community most in need. It supports those who don’t know where their next meal will come from, households where parents go without in order to feed their kids.
