Children’s Guide to Coronavirus – Children’s Commissioner

 

The Children’s Commissioner has developed a children’s guide to Coronavirus which supports children and young people in understanding what it is, how they can protect themselves and their families, how to deal with worries and hints and resources to pass the time whilst in lockdown. The Children’s Commissioner says “All these changes might make you feel scared or worried. That’s OK. It’s totally normal to feel like this”. The Children’s Guide can be accessed via the link  below:
