This week, children and young people across Essex will be returning to school or college. Whilst for many this is an exciting time, for others it may feel overwhelming.
We spoke to young people from the Essex Boys and Girls Clubs to hear their thoughts and feelings about going back to school. Listen as they offer advice to others who may be feeling nervous about heading back to the classroom.
Visit Essex County Council on Facebook to watch the video with the Essex Boys and Girls Clubs.
The Every Family Matters campaign from Essex County Council is a county-wide effort to support children and families in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The council has invested in a range of different services, covering areas such as coping with change and building resilience, that can make the transition back to school easier for children, young people and their parents.
Through the Every Family Matters campaign, ECC is continuing to sign-post to the local organisations and support across the county available through its Family Innovation Fund and Family Innovation Fund Xtra services. Find out more about the support available to children and families on the Essex County Council website.
