About this event

The last year has changed many of our lives with people experiencing disruption to their working lives, education and home life. Growing up for some young people can be a challenging time even when life is considered relatively normal. Over the last year, Covid-19 has added to the challenges faced by some children and young people.

There has been disruption to the usual methods of learning and working with many children having to home school and many young people having to work from home. Before the pandemic, it would have been uncommon for children and young people to encounter daily the current volume of media coverage relating to death, dying and illness. (Healthwatch Bexley's report on Emotional Wellbeing of Children and Young People Aged 11-25, 2021).

The NHS, along with children and young people's service professionals and experts from Bexley Voluntary Service Council (BVSC), Bexley Moorings, Kooth and Bexley Voice, would like to bring parents and care givers in Bexley a free online event focussing on the emotional wellbeing of children and young people aged 11+.

This event is for anyone who is concerned about the emotional wellbeing of a young person or people aged 11+, and wants to know where to go for support, advice and find out what resources are available to them locally.

  • 7.00PM: Welcome - Dr Emma Agyekum, Bexley GP
