Coronavirus: updates, advice and support

Coronavirus: updates, advice and support

Like the rest of the world, Place2Be has adapted as coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts society and everyday lives.

When schools closed, we worked hard to ensure we could support as many children, young people, and families as possible by sharing tips, advice, and updates on how to access our services and support.

Now schools have reopened, we are continuing to provide our vital support and help children and young people adapt to being back in the classroom.

Children and young people need our emotional support now more than ever. Please donate today to help us to support the mental health of children and families across the UK.
