Fumble Talks: How Has The Pandemic Affected Your Sense Of Control?

Young people in the UK explain the loss of agency, and lack of control, caused by pandemic – and how they’re coping

In this Fumble Talks episode, we’re talking about agency: our ability to do things in the world, and achieve results. Agency has been massively impacted this year, as the plans we held for our future have been interrupted, postponed or simply thrown off the agenda altogether. 

In this episode we ask, how have you coped, or perhaps not coped, with this loss of control? 

Here, young people from across the UK reflect on their personal pandemic journeys. Listen now

Fumble Talks is produced by Phoebe McIndoe with music by Phoebe. We’d like to give thanks to all our wonderful volunteers for featuring in this episode, especially the young people at Firth Park Academy, Sheffield, and Epsom College, Surrey.

The pandemic has had a huge impact on all of our lives, and we’ve all struggled to understand and digest the changes that continue to happen all around us. Our pandemic support series explores young people’s experiences of COVID-19, and helps you start to make sense of the chaotic and uncertain time we’re living in.
