Family and Adult Learning
Please see below for the newsletters from the Lincolnshire Family Learning and Adult Learning Teams.
Family Lives have a great support network and sent this for us to share.
Unfortunately, for some families, lockdown can be a troublesome, lonely time. If you would like to speak to someone, we are here for you. You can talk to one of our, Family Support Workers by calling our confidential Family Lives Helpline on 0808 800 2222.
Please read the documents below to highlight the importance of talking to your children about how to stay safe when they are not with you.
If you are a parent or carer, the web-links below will be useful to help you keep your children safe when using the internet at home.
Online ‘Managing worries and anxious feelings’ workshop
On the link below you will find a recorded anxiety workshop that is appropriate for both Primary and Secondary aged pupils. We recommend that Primary aged children are supported by their Parents/carers/responsible adult to access this as they might need some help to understand or complete the activities. The workshop contains positive, supportive strategies that would be delivered to a group of children that are either experiencing some low level worries/anxieties or to provide education and support about some supportive strategies that are just good to know anyway on a day to day basis to help us to understand ourselves more and process our feelings.
On the link if you scroll to near the bottom of the page you will find the workshop.
There are links to supporting workbooks for Primary and Secondary aged children to use alongside the workshop which are just about the video. There is also a parent pack to download under the video with advice and support for parents and carers. Please see the link below for the online anxiety workshop:
