Resources to help you support your children

This may be a difficult time for children and young people too

As part of the #YouveBeenMissed campaign, resources have been produced to help our children and young people manage their mental wellbeing in school. They include activities focusing on issues such as anxiety, anger, stress, managing emotions and challenging thoughts.

Here are some resources from BBC Newsround for children who may be worried about Covid, to help them look after their mental health and wellbeing.

Help keep your child safe online

Thinkuknow is the education programme from NCA-CEOP, a UK organisation which protects children both online and offline.

They have created these home activity packs to support parents during COVID-19 and the closure of schools. Each one contains a 15 minute activity you can do with your child to support their online safety.

Video chat safely


Video calling has quickly become part of our “new normal.”
Whether it’s engaging in an online classroom or catching up with friends
and family, here's how to make sure your child's video chats are safe and secure.

As well as thinking about the children or young people in your care, it is important to take care of your own mental health and wellbeing. Visit our Mental Health page to find out more.

Struggling with debt or unemployment?

Poverty destroys lives. It breaks families apart, isolates people from friends and family, shatters confidence and drives many to think that suicide is the only way out.
No one should wake up wondering where they’ll find the money to feed their children or heat their home. No one should have to be alone, especially when times are tough.
CAP is on a mission to release thousands of families from grinding poverty through award winning debt counselling and community groups.
