Dear Parents & Carers,
We know how difficult the past few weeks have been for you and the young people in your household; dealing with lockdown restrictions and in many cases home schooling.
You may have heard your child mention Kooth through information they have received from their schools, but we wanted to reach out and let you know about the service so that, should your child need a bit of extra support, you can help support and signpost them to our service.
Kooth Support Statement: Covid-19

As schools across the country begin to contingency plan in the event of closures this week, I wished to make contact to highlight the support Kooth.com is able to provide at this difficult time.
Kooth will continue to provide online mental health and wellbeing support to young people aged 11-18 years and up to 25 years for care leavers in Sunderland via any internet accessible device. Kooth provides an opportunity to interact in a supportive way with other young people as well as receive support from a qualified counsellor.
We would like to ensure that young people are signposted to a safe environment where information, advice and guidance is accessible through age appropriate, pre-moderated articles, forums in an aim to reduce some of those anxieties surrounding Covid-19.
Young people can also chat in confidence with qualified counsellors, who are online from 12-noon until 10pm on weekdays and from 6pm until 10pm, 365 days a year.
