Living through a global pandemic is something new for all of us, and it’s equally as scary too. It’s important we all have resources we can turn to, helping us to cope and change our lives accordingly within this period. But the general guidance written isn’t always suitable for young people. Sometimes the language can be difficult to understand, like the use of new jargon words, or it might not mention things that are important to us as young people.
That’s why PHE brought together a group of eight youth representatives (including us), who have extensive personal experiences of the health system in the UK, to shape new guidance which is easier for young people living through the coronavirus pandemic to understand.
