Support for Families
Please see below a selection of documents and links which may support families during the lock down. They may offer further ideas for keeping busy, for supporting mental health and for staying safe online. It is more important than ever that we take as much care of our mental well-being as we do our physical health during this time. Many of us will have loved ones and family members we will find ourselves physically isolated from; maintaining connections will be vital for everyone in our community.
If you need immediate support, the Department for Education have set up a dedicated helpline to answer questions about Coronavrius (COVID-19) related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline on 0800 046 8687.
The London Borough of Redbridge and partners would like to assure you that support remains available to all members of the community. Here are a few places you can contact:
