FRIDAY 5TH MARCH

 

It been a great few weeks for the Ranger Cadets, with the new announcement of the Roadmap to freedom, we have been able to plan our own exciting roadmap, beginning with the opening of our new cadets unit in Bank, London. 

We are excited to provide our cadets and volunteers a location to begin helping our young people prepare for life, meet new friends and have fun!

If you are interested in helping to volunteer or join as a Ranger Cadet post lockdown, we are recruiting and accepting applications!

All you have to do is email us at cadets@rangercadets.org.uk and let us know why you would like to volunteer or when you would like to join as a cadet and we will get back to you asap!

Try something new this year for a great cause, and have fun along the way.

Christmas is traditionally known as the “most wonderful time of the year" - which it usually is, but many people are suffering more than usual this year due to Covid-19. However there are so many ways you can help out those who are deprived this Christmas and make their day easier and happier!

Below are a few examples of how you can help charities this Christmas:

  1. Join Carol Concerts and donate in your local area

FRIDAY 20TH NOVEMBER

 

This year has been pretty tough for all of us, some may say it's been a rollercoaster of a year. Either way, we have all been affected by Covid-19 in some shape or form! Not being able to see friends or family and carry out our daily routines makes it even harder for us to feel like life is normal.

 

According to the WHO, statistics show that over 60% reported disruptions to mental health services for vulnerable people, including children and adolescents (72%), older adults (70%), and women requiring antenatal or postnatal services (61%).

That is why today I am going to help you use specific tactics for you, your family and young children to carry out on a daily basis to maintain a happy and healthy mind. It is vital that we are looking after our mental health.
