  • Support & Activities during the COVID-19 Crisis

    At InterAct, we understand that with schools and colleges closed, and our face-to-face activities for young people suspended, life may have become very difficult for the young people we support, and for their families.

    We hope to resume our face-to-face activities for young people in some way, as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so, but we are continuing to say in touch via regular online activities – quizzes, chat, cookery etc. For further information, please call the InterAct Young People Team on 01245-608206, or email youngpeopleteam@interact.org.uk

    For parents/carers, and other adults, we are also running FREE Resilience and Wellbeing workshops online - for more information or to book please contact: training@interact.org.uk

    Meanwhile, if you are feeling anxious, stressed or feeling that you cannot cope, please do pick up the phone and call the InterAct Young People Team on 01245-608206.

    We will listen and try to help, and if necessary help you get support via the community hubs and Essex Welfare Service which have been set up during the COVID-19 crisis.

    If your need is particularly urgent, or you would like to seek support directly from the new Essex Welfare Service, or to refer someone else for support,  their details are as follows:

    Contact details (Mon-Fri 8am-7pm, Sat-Sun 10am-2pm) for  Support Requests by Phone: 0300 303 9988 or www.essexwelfareservice.org.uk/support-request

    Useful information if your child or young person should become unwell or have an injury during the COVID-19 outbreak 

    Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself. please view this helpful flyer.
