Coronavirus update – 6th April 2020

YMCA Fairthorne Group continues to offer vital support to local families and vulnerable young people during these difficult times.

We are continuing to provide childcare for children of critical workers at our Fairthorne Manor, Andover, Whale Island, New Milton, Woolston and Millbrook settings as we follow the latest Government guidelines and the key principle of keeping your child at home if it is at all possible.   We have welcomed a number of new children of critical workers where their current settings are closed and will continue to do so where possible.  Visit our website for further information and contact details for each setting.  We will also continue to provide support to the families of our most vulnerable children throughout this period.

Our dedicated staff team are providing vital front line support to vulnerable young people and families in Southampton, Basingstoke and Isle of Wight and we are repurposing properties to house the homeless in Southampton to help provide assistance to those in our communities who need it most.

A huge thank you to our staff team for their continued dedication and commitment through difficult times and to customers for their support and understanding.
