Masonic Charitable Foundation


We are grateful to the Masonic Charitable Foundation (MCF) for their support this year.

CYCA provide nurseries, after school clubs, workshops, counselling and mentoring. We also train professionals in resiliency and communication skills. We run a bereavement support group for young people, mentoring for young people leaving the care system and online support for parents to keep children safe online.

We have witnessed a huge increase in demands for our services in the past nine months with many experiencing EMOTIONAL DISTRESS; anxiety and / or depression. These conditions are not necessarily a mental health condition, however if undiagnosed, over a longer period of time can result in more severe conditions. CYCA support with over 200 families in the past two years has evidenced that by giving the individuals the coping strategies that are appropriate and achievable, they can learn to manage the distress and prevent burnout.

The support from MCF will enable us to work with 40 young adults over the next year. We will also be able to market our services further in the hope that those most in need will reach out to us.

Diolch yn fawr.
