Spring UpDAYte for DAY Session Leaders.  
View this email in your browser
Hello! We have moved into incredibly challenging times. Schools are now closed, many are in self-isolation and all of us should be social distancing in order to stop the spread of the Corona virus.  While this is a challenging time for everyone, for those who live with an abuser, being stuck full-time in the home is an absolute nightmare.  It is likely that many abusers will take advantage of the virus measures to further isolate and hurt their partner and children. For children and young people, there is no longer the refuge of schools or youth groups to provide respite from the terror and violence a parent, carer or other family member may be subjecting them to.   If your income is stable and you are able to, please do consider donating to your local domestic abuse service as they will be really struggling at this time.

There's little that we can do as educators and practitioners, and for many of us, our personal lives will be in disarray as job security is threatened, we no longer have childcare, and societal instability increases.  For the children and young people we know and work with, school ending is a huge challenge particiularly as their GCSEs and A-Levels are cancelled.

The DAY Programme remains committed to educating practitioners and young people, and our Spring UpDAYte includes resources for reading and learning.  You may not be able to share this learning with young people yet, but if you have time in self-isolation or as other work gets cancelled, why not grab a cuppa and take time to watch some of the videos and read through the resources.

And we've got an exciting online training course happening in April that YOU could join us for!  Find out more below...
