A virtual workshop focused on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and young people in the UK took place in May 2021. The workshop examined the effects of COVID-19 on childhood through the lens of the three Childhood Programme themes (being vs becoming, children’s rights and children’s voice), and also included an emphasis on two cross-cutting aspects – namely inequalities and a focus on all four parts of the UK. A summary note is now available here, alongside a summary booklet aimed specifically at children.
