COVID 19

Supporting children through the coronavirus: 

The outbreak of Covid-19 means that many aspects of children’s ‘normal’ routines have been abruptly and significantly changed. Many children are now spending all their time at home with their immediate family and all children are not able to have direct contact with their wider family and friends.

This will be an anxious time for many children, they may have worries and questions about how the virus might affect them and those close to them, especially older members of their family and those already in poor health.

Child Bereavement UK has made a short film about supporting bereaved children during the outbreak. Please find the link to this support below:
