We recognise that this is a very challenging time for your family and, during the coming weeks, it will be important to take good care of yourselves and those around you.
We have put together some easy to use resources to help you look after your family's mental health and emotional well-being. We will keep adding to this as time goes on.
We hope you enjoy using them!

As sorts competitions are put on hold, School Games Organisers (SGOs) from across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are finding new ways to keep young people active. This week, they launched #HSGDailyChallenge to encourage pupils to stay active and compete to achieve their personal bests.
#HSGDailyChallenge will involve daily physical activity challenges for primary and secondary school pupils. The School Games Organisers will publish a new challenge every day via @HampshireSGO Twitter and Facebook channels.
Pupils will be encouraged to record their progress and improvement and compete to achieve their personal best. Outstanding achievements will be rewarded with spot prizes for individual and schools.
Our School Games Organiser also sent us the following links, with ways to keep your children active at home.
