“I Pledge” project being facilitated as part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Good Relations Programme. They are trying to provide an opportunity for people in our communities to respond in a positive way to their experience of Covid-19.

 

 It only requires a one-sentence response for those who wish to engage and can be very simple, especially for younger children. Teachers and parents are also very welcome to participate! Responses can be sent by email to patricia.harkin@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk by Thursday 20th August.

 

The pledges that people send in will be included on their website during Community Relations Week in September 2020. They will also be printing a booklet with all the pledges they receive and we plan to send this out for participants to keep.

Emerging Minds

23-Jun-2020

The University of Oxford do a lot of work on the development and treatment of anxiety problems in children and young people. They have put together an evidence-based resource (also translated into a number of other languages) to help parents/carers manage children’s worries around Covid-19. To view link click here.

 

They have also recently launched a UK based study to track child and adolescent mental health over the next few months during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to identify what is helping and what families need.

So far over 9,000 parents/carers have taken part in the study and so we have a lot of really interesting and useful data to share.
