After nine months of research and planning, we launched a Crowdfunder to gather the community backing and some essential fund to enable a pilot service. Being a Community Interest Company means all the money raised will go straight into making this service live and will be used to better our community.
Working with technology is expensive, and to create a sustainable and ethical organisation we needed to purchase a number of items to run peer sessions and gain feedback. The great thing is, we only need a small amount of kit to get started, so now we've reached our target we can continue this service for up to a year and still support many children and young people!
10% of the total raised was donated to Leeds Children's Hospital through Leeds Cares to help during COVID-19.
