Supporting Visyon during Covid-19
At Visyon we understand that we are currently in an uncertain time, for a lot of us we are out of our normal routine which can lead to us feeling a little anxious.
Visyon are providing lots of different services to support the emotional health of children and young people during this time. We are adapting our services to make sure that young people who are struggling during this time are able to get the support that they need. This includes telephone calls and group sessions through different multi-media platforms. We are working with young people to manage their emotional health and to learn effective coping mechanisms during this time.
We rely on the support of our community and local businesses to be able to provide our essential services including the services that we are currently providing to local children and young people during this time.
We understand that for a lot of people this is a difficult time but as a charity we still need your support. There are lots of different ways that you can get involved.

If you are shopping at the Co-op you can make Visyon your local cause
This year Visyon has been nominated as a Co-op local cause in Congleton. If you sign up to become a Co-op member each time you shop you will get 5% of what you spend on co-op branded products back. If you choose Visyon as your local cause Co-op will also give 1% back to Visyon at no extra cost to you. This is a great way to support Visyon whilst you are doing your usual food shopping.
The money raised from the Co-op local cause supports Visyon to directly support young people who are accessing our open access sessions. Visyon’s open access sessions offer young people and their parents/carers a 30 minute session where they are able to talk to one of Visyon’s well-being workers about how they are feeling, what support they might need and to receive some initial support with their emotional health.
