Advice and support for parents:
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:
Winston’s Wish has produced guidance on talking to bereaved children about coronavirus and suggestions on how to tell a child that someone has died from coronavirus. Please find the link for this support below:
We hope that you all continue to stay safe. Please do contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org should you require any additional support.
Reporting Domestic Abuse
West Yorkshire Police have created a simple online form to enable people to report domestic abuse directly to them and as an alternative to speaking on the phone.
The information people provide on the form will be dealt with in the same way as any other report of domestic abuse.
