2019 saw the launch fo Plus Provision, a wraparound programme of support for young people run by Southampton Hub, in partnership with Youth Options and funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. 100% of partners agreed that young people had access to opportunities through Plus Provision they would not otherwise have had.
A number of activities and resources were put in place through Plus Provision to respond to issues facing the Southampton community during COVID-19, such as:
- Activity programme in primary schools for the children of key workers;
- Activity packs and all necessary resources to complete them delivered to young people at home, created by a collective of Southampton cultural organisations;
- Virtual tutoring and academic resources created for young people to support educational attainment during the summer.
