On behalf of our team we would like to add how much we have admired your resilience during this and our appreciation for the care you are providing to the children. We would also like to thank you all for your cooperation and understanding during this challenging time. Please look after yourselves and keep safe.
Coronavirus and Me
The Children’s Commissioner for Wales has launched a Nation-wide survey again for ALL children living in Wales ‘Coronavirus and Me.’
The aim is for children to have their say on how they’ve been affected during this current lockdown. This is an opportunity for children to express how they are feeling and contribute to an understanding of the overall impact on children in Wales.
The Survey closes on the 29th January 2021

This page lists some useful resources that will provide you with some further information on how to limit the risks around Coronavirus, ways to promote your own well-being and how to support the children in your care.
