Projects UK Accepting the Change, Transforming your Perspective Join us for the first session of a free brand new online series aimed at supporting young people through the coronavirus pandemic. The webinar This session will be hosted by guest host Louis Howell and will focus on accepting the (admittedly drastic) change that Lockdown poses. We will dive into understanding how to stay motivated during this time and then how to go about seeing positive opportunities to develop yourself and your community in this time. The session will explore how young people are adjusting as well as including practical, positive activities for young people to do. There will be fun and games! There will also be signposting to additional support and as always, discussions around what matters most to the group.
