    The outbreak of Covid 19 affects every one of us to a different extent and in a different shape or form. For children with additional support and wellbeing needs, the pandemic presents an extra layer of challenges for them and their families.

    Family Fund have been undertaking research aiming to understand how the Covid-19 outbreak is affecting families raising disabled or seriously ill children in the UK, as well as their immediate concerns and needs. A total of 232 families in Scotland took part in the initial survey and told their stories.

    Salena and Richard of Family Fund will join the webinar to share the findings of this research. They will also share how Family Fund uses the feedback from the affected families to inform their work in response to Covid-19. Through the Q&A session, there will be opportunities to discuss how the needs of these families can be better met by adapting services at organisational level and by planning services at strategic level during and beyond the pandemic.

    This session will be relevant to anyone who:

    • works with disabled or seriously ill children and their families
    • has an interest in supporting vulnerable children and young people
    • has a role in planning Children’s Services and/or Health and Social Care
    • can share how they have adapted their support to meet the needs of these families

    To reserve a free place, please book here.
