Health and Wellbeing
Dear Parents/ Carers and Students,
Hope you are keeping well in these challenging times. We would like to share these resources that you might find useful from the British Red Cross. They have recently launched a campaign with the aim to tackle loneliness with a digital program funded by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). It particularly focuses on reaching young people, people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) communities, the digitally excluded, refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants, people at risk of loneliness due to health issues and older people.
They have some exciting new online resources to help empower people who may be feeling lonely, and provide them with tools to build confidence, reach out to others and look to the future.
All of their resources are free and can be found at
The new Loneliness Digital Classroom is now open for booking, where participants can explore how it might feel to be lonely or isolated and learn skills to help others who may be experiencing loneliness. There are two sessions available, one for children and young people aged 10-19 and one for adults aged 19+. Sessions can be booked by emailing RedCrossEducation@redcross.org.uk or calling 0344 412 2734.
