COVID 19

Since the very early stage of the OUR Generation Project, like the rest of the world, the COVID-19 has had a major impact on delivery.

However like the rest of society we continue to adapt to any changes in rules and regulations set out but governments to ensure we can carry out our goal of delivery and help children, young people and their key contact grow up better, together.

There is a huge amount of pressure on people in the communities across our project and it can feel very overwhelming.

However, there are a raft of networks that offer 24/7 advice and assistance in the digital world. You can find lots of great resources for children, young people and key contacts on our website.

There are also other great resources named below which may offer some relief to those need.

 

Please remember… in the case of where Urgent Care is required.

Samaritans – 116 123

Lifeline – 0808 808 8000

Childline – 0800 1111
