CYZ wasn’t about to let this absolute devastation defeat it. Within a week the first and second floors were open providing free Holiday Club and food to any young person and their families affected by the floods.
CYZ was there to provide the emotional support young people required, as many of our members had also had their own homes devastated too. Everywhere they knew was gone – home, school, friends gone, families split up. That was why we wanted some continuity at CYZ for them.
