So, with the latest developments around NHS and Government advice regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19, some of you may have concerns about how to stay healthy and fit while social distancing.
The transfer of all types of communication, from education to catching up with friends to digital platforms, may also raise concerns from parents and carers around the safety of the channels that young people are using, and increasingly, having to rely upon.
Luckily, YCSA’s partner agencies have been sharing really useful advice and resources.
