Wellbeing Resouces 

Partnership for Children have developed a set of wellbeing activities for parents, carers and teachers to support children's mental wellbeing during lockdown. They are designed to help children explore their feelings and find positive coping strategies to deal with Covid-19. This weeks resources include the worry jar, dealing with change, staying connected and ways to feel better.
