Stay Connected

Not being able to see some family and friends during social distancing restrictions can start to have a negative impact on our mental well-being. It’s important to find new ways of connecting with people during the crisis – and your YFC can play a big role in making this happen.

If you don't feel ready to host a Covid-Secure meeting, your YFC could be hosting a weekly meeting through an online platform such as Zoom, WhatsApp or FaceTime. The free Zoom service is ideal for more formal committee meetings – just make sure you follow normal meeting guidelines regarding setting an agenda and minuting information. See our guidance on hosting online meetings

For a more informal get together, your YFC could consider online quizzes, fun challenges or even regular phone calls or texts to stay in touch. Check out some more ideas here.   

It's important to keep your mind busy and we have ideas for activities for all ages that you can do while you're stuck at home. Check out some ideas here
