A space to be and reconnect
Don't just dive straight back in! Take your time...
We've all been through an interesting and, for many, difficult couple of years. Before resuming any sort of regular children's or youth programming we recommend that you facilitate your group in some time of gentle reflection and discussion.
You may well have taken a break and so time invested in rebuilding relationships is time well spent. For children and young people the return to regular school attendance will have been an emotional roller-coaster that may well have left them tired and in need of safe space to process those feelings.
The resources here are created and curated to help you reconnect. We'd also recommend that you take a look at the section on naming loss and celebrating milestones and the other web pages that the Children, Youth and Family Team created to help with 'Lockdown and beyond'.
