And is still the best way to support local causes

November 15 - December 13, 2021

Children, Youth & Families

Social service charities, which include supporting Children, Youth and Families, received some of the most donations throughout the pandemic with 41% of all donations. These charities may also fit into other sectors, but have the unique perspective of supporting this particular group.

In general, there has been a negative impact on Children, Youth and Families throughout the pandemic. Though beneficial, the public health measures have been extremely difficult for families to deal with. There has been decreased physical activity, increased screen time, negative mental health impacts, increased behavioural problems and increased isolation.
