Effects of Confinement Workstream

This group brings together a diverse group of psychologists to examine the impacts on confinement and isolation on a wide range of vulnerable groups, to identify gaps and partenrs and to develop accessible resources.

The first key areas of focus will be to support children and young people along with their families, teachers and carers who are currently experiencing confinement who will be on transitions through the education system.

The group will also link with the Poverty to Flourishing campaign to respond to the effects of confinement for people living in poverty.
