Support for kids of key workers | from The British Psychological Society 

Children of key workers are being helped to understand and deal with the stresses they may feel about a parent working on the front line of the pandemic through a booklet.

The booklet provides tips and hints to help key workers support their children through the current situation.

An additional booklet specifically for children aims to answer any questions or concerns a child may have about their parent’s work during the pandemic.
