YMCA Exeter Support Workers - Lydia Brown
As lockdown hit on 23rd March, YMCA Exeter Support Worker, Lydia Brown, was on call 24/7 responding faultlessly and courageously to young people struggling with the impact of lockdown on their mental health. One resident needed Lydia to accompany them to the hospital, other residents needed Lydia to queue for hours to collect their prescriptions. Many residents just wanted to chat on the phone day or night, knowing that Lydia would be there for them. To all of us at YMCA Exeter, Lydia is our lockdown legend.
