Talking to children and young people who are anxious about coronavirus 

With the current and changing situation and media coverage, it is likely that some children and young people may become concerned and anxious. This is reasonable, as they will never have experienced something like this before and do not have the experience to know what may happen.

Parents, carers and adults who work with children and young people play a very important role in providing a familiar and secure environment where they can answer any questions and worries.

Advice and guidance:


Portsmouth City Council has updated the coronavirus section of their website with information for schools and families.
