Coronavirus, Children & You – Advice & Resources from the UK Children’s Commissioner

DAILY UPDATE (26th June 2020) 

There have been big changes in our lives because of Coronavirus and so the UK Children’s Commissioner have created a children’s guide to help explain the situation. The guide aims to answer children’s questions about Coronavirus, tell children how to stay safe and protect other people and how to help them make the best of their time at home.

Download the ‘Children’s Guide to Coronavirus’ HERE.

The Children’s Commissioner has also published a digital safety and wellbeing kit for parents to help ensure children are safe and that their wellbeing is looked after while at home during the coronavirus outbreak, when their screen time maybe higher than usual.

Download the ‘Parents’ Digital Safety and Wellbeing Kit’ HERE.

During the pending summer months some parents may also want more resources to help keep their child busy, active and learning. The Children’s Commissioner have compiled a list of handy, free online activities and materials, to use at home, available to view HERE.
