We know that this time can be the cause of much anxiety and concern for young people and their families. Wirral Council have set up a dedicated free-phone helpline to support young people who may be struggling. Children and young people can call 0808 196 4147 to speak to one of the advisers who will be there to take their call Monday – Friday between 9am-5pm. We have also compiled a list of various resources aimed to help people cope with such stress and uncertainty at this time. Follow the links if you would like further support or ideas.
