Lots of us are dealing with our own worries and anxieties as well as supporting our children, family and friends.

There are lots of ways to stay in touch with family and friends using technology even if we can’t be with them in person.

There are many sites and YouTube channels that have made their content free to offer support for people. These include sites for physical exercise, meditation and yoga.

Lots of services and organisations are offering online support. Here are some links to some sites that you might find helpful for yourself and your adult family members.
