Since the nationwide lockdown measures were introduced in late March, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Hull and East Yorkshire Children’s University have been working tirelessly to ensure the 7000+ vulnerable children in the region are supported in their education and wellbeing.
The life-changing impact of coronavirus has left many of us feeling down in the dumps, and whilst we try to stay informed of the latest guidance via the news, it can often feel like everything is pretty doom and gloom.
