Following government advice surrounding Covid-19 we have sadly had to postpone all of the Foundation's community-based projects, but we want you to know that we haven’t gone anywhere.
We understand that we’re all in a bit of a strange place at the moment and for lots of us it’s a very uncertain and worrying time.
Whether you are studying for exams, doing your schoolwork from home, are looking after a relative or are having to manage something else, it’s important that you look after your physical and mental wellbeing as best as you can too.
The most important thing to remember is that while you may be stuck indoors and unable to see your friends, you can still keep up to date with everyone and stay active.
Learning online, using social media to connect with your friends or watching lessons on YouTube are great way to stay connected, but it’s important to make sure that you know how to stay safe. You can find some useful tips on keeping safe online here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zfcvhbk/articles/zkcj92p
If you’re feeling a little worried or bored stuck in the house, try to do at least one form of exercise each day. Every day at 9am Michael has been taking part in The Body Coach PE Lesson with Joe Wicks. It’s a great way to start the day and keep fit. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done it before, anyone can give it a go! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ
