COVID-19 information and guidance

At InterAct, we understand that during the COVID-19 pandemic, life may have been very difficult for the young people we support, and for their families.

Where possible, InterAct has been running our face-to-face activities for young people, whilst keeping within the guidelines and restrictions which apply at any time.

InterAct follows COVID- secure hygiene procedures, guidance from national & local government, and from the National Youth Agency.

We are also continuing to stay in touch via regular online activities – quizzes, chat, cookery etc.

Further information here is on our Children and Young people pages.

Our training programmes are also being delivered online (via Zoom). These include Mental Health First Aid (MHFA), Youth MHFA, and workshops in Developing Self-Care, Resilience and Wellbeing.

Further information is available here on our Emotional Wellbeing & Positive Mental Health pages.

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 other support services which have been set up during the COVID-19 crisis.

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

Whilst the COVID-19 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.
