WSHWBS – Coronavirus information for families

You can access the latest information and advice on Coronavirus from the NHS here. The current government guidelines and regulations for controlling the virus can be found here, and education and childcare guidance here. You can also access useful information from Warwickshire Family Information Service here.

We know how difficult and unsettling the current times can be for children, young people and their families. We are here to help in Warwickshire: you can contact a school nurse for advice on a wide range of health and wellbeing topics. It could be that as a child or young person, you’re feeling nervous about going back to school – or that as a parent/carer, you have concerns about your child’s health, wellbeing or development. Whatever the issue, you can contact a school nurse for friendly, confidential support.
