However, we know that there is much more to be done in coming months and years to:
Keep children and young people safe, whether they are continuing to attend school or staying at home particularly for those at risk of abuse or neglect and those with special educational needs.
Protect children and families facing financial insecurity as a result of the crisis and to prevent child poverty reaching a record high.
Support the mental health and wellbeing of all children through the crisis – particularly in the context of school closures and pressure on health services.
We continue to do all we can to support the collective effort to face this challenge and to ensure the social and economic effects of the coronavirus are not felt in the lives of our children in the years ahead.
COVID-19 has permanently changed our world and the way we live our lives. However, at times like this, it’s the strength and desire to help from the public that can make the most difference. That’s why we, the CHILD SAFE FOUNDATION, have launched an appeal to raise funds for local charities and grassroots organisations globally that can provide a vital support to people in the quickest way possible.
