Please also go on the Oxford Health website to access some helpful resources to support children and young people experiencing worries about coronavirus.

As Lock down continues and schools remain closed we understand that some families are finding it hard to cope with the continuing isolation, home schooling, working from home, behaviours, emotions and much more.  We would like to remind you that the Splash team are available to support young people during this stressful and confusing time. 

We are available to undertake one to one work with young people, giving them the opportunity to talk to someone outside of the family unit.  These one to one sessions can be by telephone or via remote meetings using online tools such as Whats App, Skype or ZOOM.  

We are also delivering multiple weekly online fun group sessions, including themed quizzes, activities and scavenger hunts. 

 If you would like to get your child/a child you work with involved in any of our online provision, please reply to this email and one of the team will get in touch.

If you would like to discuss our support offer or require urgent support please call the Splash office on 01380 732829
