Lockdown has been extremely difficult for everyone and our young people have not been exempt from that difficulty. This new blog is a question and answer session with some of our young people. Through this we hope that by sharing their experiences and feelings they will help other young people to realise that they are not alone in what they are feeling and that their is support out there for them.

This time is the turn of young Brooke to share her experience with us all.

What are you missing most – I am missing my friends and I am missing school.

What are you looking forward to after lockdown – I am looking forward to going back to school after lockdown and because of the nice weather if that continues I’d really like to go to the beach.

How are you coping with lockdown – I’m doing okay but I am bored and it is stressful because of us having a busy household, my brother constantly shouts.

Do you have support – I have great support from my Mum and Dad.

Are you aware of other support that is out there – I know my friends and other family will support me if I need them I can call them to talk.

Any other comments you would like to make – Lockdown has been stressful for me as I like to be out and about with friends and playing. I miss even going to shops as I was beginning to get more independence before lockdown by Coronavirus has stopped that. I feel better after speaking to John and it was really nice of him to call and do this.
