Public Health England (PHE) has worked with members of the National Health Service Youth Forum and ‘I Will’ Ambassadors to create COVID-19 guidance that is more accessible for young people. PHE has tailored guidance by adapting the advice, resources and language to be more relevant to young people aged 11-19 years. The published information includes advice on social distancing, shielding, looking after your wellbeing and the benefits of youth social action. The guidance is available at the following link:
PHE has also published an ‘easy read’ version of the shielding guidance so that anyone with more limited reading skills can access online or in printed format.
