Engage COVID 19 Update - 11 August


Schools and regulated ELC are beginning again from 11 August and we are receiving queries about whether other indoor activity may resume at the same time.
The answer is that indoor activities for children and young people which are not overseen by a regulator should not start again until agreed guidance is in place.  Unfortunately, back to school does not mean back to normality and for now, ensuring that the transition back to school is successful is our top priority.
For now, activities for children and young people under the age of 18  should continue online or outdoors in line with existing guidance. 
We know that these indoor activities are of huge value to children, young people and families across Scotland and our ambition is to get them open soon as soon as this is deemed appropriate.  We will provide further information about timing with additional guidance where this is necessary.

Scottish Recovery Network - Staying connected

Insights and inspiration from people across Scotland on staying well during and after lockdown.
It is important that the voices and experiences of people from across the country influence thinking around how we support good mental health and wellbeing as we move through and out from the lockdown. Sharing learning from their online conversation cafés, Scottish Recovery Network have launched a set of resources (report, podcast and animation) which tap into the knowledge, skills and lived experience of people from different communities; particularly those living with mental health challenges.
