Connecting with family and friends

During this period of social distancing many of us will experience loneliness, but just because we can’t physically be with our friends and family, doesn’t mean we can interact with them. There are a number of apps and platforms you can use to talk to others which are free to download on your smart phone, like WhatsApp or Facetime.

You could also consider connecting with friends to watch a movie or TV show this way.

Help children stay connected with friends and family with phone calls, video calls and even by writing old fashioned letters.

Connecting with your community

It’s important to remember that we are still a community and by thinking of others, especially our most vulnerable community members, we can protect the whole community.

A good way to do this is check on your elderly neighbours and relatives. You can do this without causing them alarm by dropping a note at their door or in their mailbox, see the image here for an idea of how to show your support.
