Youth Out Loud - Wellbeing during COVID-19 crisis - Survey
Youth Out Loud is a group of young people aged 13-17 years from across Kingston and Richmond. We work with Healthwatch in Kingston and in Richmond and use our voices to make health and care services better for young people. We do this by making films, doing surveys, visiting and viewing local services, and making sure young people’s voices are heard.
Are you a teen living in Kingston or Richmond? We want to hear from you! We want to know about your experiences during COVID-19. We'll use the answers that you give to help organisations like the NHS and the Council to better support young people. Please use this link or visit our website www.yolweb.info and click on the survey pin to take part!
Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow: Support for families is available
Home-Start is a local community network of expert staff and trained volunteers supporting struggling families with young children through their challenging times. Families struggling with post-natal depression, mental health, isolation, physical health problems, bereavement and many other issues receive emotional and practical support from us, helping them to regain their confidence.
While we’re currently unable to support families in their homes due to the global pandemic, we have adapted and shifted our offering by supporting families remotely:
- Regular telephone support to families or weekly contact with families through phone/text/email
- Someone to talk to and for emotional support through these uncertain and isolating times
- Access to hardship funds available e.g. food banks and educational resources, signposting to local services for financial help and support
- Guidance and support around parenting
- Up to date information on local services
- Ideas and activities to keep children active at home
