Fostering People’s ‘In it together’ resources guide

Fostering People’s ‘In it together’ resources guide

Coronavirus has changed the way we live our lives completely.  With us all needing to stay at home unless we are taking exercise or shopping of essentials, we all need to find new ways to fill our days and keep ourselves and our children entertained and occupied.

Here we have collected a number of resources to help.  We’ll continue to add to this collection to provide you with a simple to use resource to get you and your family through ‘lockdown’.

Stay save, stay home and protect the NHS.
