The Cam Nesa project, working with young people aged between 16 and 24, has been busy putting together wellbeing packs for its participants to support them if they are experiencing loneliness, isolation or other vulnerabilities during the coronavirus lockdown.

The wellbeing packs have been distributed to Ceredigion’s young people in recent weeks.

Throughout the pandemic participants has also receive weekly calls as part of Porth Cymorth Cynnar’s keeping in touch service and it is hoped that the well-being packs support the work already done by this service by bringing some comfort and reassurance to Ceredigion’s young people.

Wellbeing packs included newsletters, leaflets, important contact details, information letters, puzzles, newspaper, hand cream, stress ball, calming art and colouring pencils, shampoo/shower gel, toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitary products, confectionery and a motivational quote card all in a reusable cotton bag.

One Cam Nesa participant said “Thank you for the welfare pack, I am very impressed with its contents, especially the chocolates.”

Cam Nesa is part of European Structural Funds (ESF) Operational Programme and supports young people by providing them with options to access a range of tailored personal support and work-related opportunities to meet their needs and aspirations.
