Emerge – One Year On

Cinnamon Help Emerge Adapt in light of COVID-19 

Lockdown only intensified the need for Emerge. As they are currently unable to go into hospital in person, Cinnamon helped the team to adapt their provision and redouble their efforts and reach young people in distress.  

  • A dedicated webpage to provide advice, support and guidance for young people struggling in the current crisis. 
  • Telephone hotline between 7pm – 11pm, Monday to Saturday, available to vulnerable young people.
  • Additional volunteers trained to provide more support over the phone.  

Emerge have seen demand for their support increase exponentially. In the first half of 2020, they have seen twice as many young people as they did in the whole of 2019.  

“Our team have worked flat-out” said Joy, “Their commitment to young people is incredible, they didn’t want to let anyone fall through the cracks.”
