With the current restrictions it’s so important that young people connect with their friends and maintain a positive mental and physical wellbeing.

Current guidance indicates that individuals can meet up 1-1 outdoors for exercise, so we’re acting now to encourage children and young people’s groups, partners and services to support young people to co-design a befriending project that allows friends to connect and motivate each other to be active, and support each other’s wellbeing during lockdown.
