Explaining to young children about the Coronavirus

Please find attached below child friendly versions of information about the Coronavirus/Social Stories that can be shared with young children (if Parent/Carers feel appropriate).

This page will be updated regularly with any new resources that we feel may be helpful.


Social distancing

Social distancing is vital to helping stop the spread of coronavirus. There are resources to help children and young people understand why it’s so important.

The GOV.UK site has guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK.

Royal College of Occupational Therapists has advice for parents who are socially distancing with children.

Young Minds also has some tips for young people on how to cope with social distancing.
