Pandemic Support: For Young People, By Young People

Struggling with the pandemic is normal. Our support series covers how to stay happy and healthy when it comes to sex, relationships, friendships, identity and mental health during COVID-19

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. 

We’ve put this series together with funding from the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund. Thanks to the Government for making this possible.
