New resource to support young people through the pandemic

Young people from across the city have pitched in to create a resource and campaign to support 16-19-year-olds to feel better during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Feel Better Coronavirus Support Guide was developed following local research with young people, which found 16-19-year-olds would like more wellbeing support.

The guide features tips for getting through self-isolation, including ideas for staying active, making a daily plan and looking after mental wellbeing. It also offers information on where to get a test for Covid-19, and how to access local support.

Young people have created a range of videos to support the campaign and encourage others to stick with self-isolation. With tips including recording Tik Tok dance routines and drawing up an activity planner, the videos are bursting with real-life inspiration.
