Ep. 17 The wider impact of Covid-19 on our children - Cllr Fiona Venner

On this week’s episode, Executive Member for Children and Families and Leeds City Council, Cllr Fiona Venner, joined host Emily Rodgers on Public Sector Voices to discuss how families in Leeds are being supported through the crisis.

As more school children are sent back to school, a lot of anxiety is apparent among children and families, uncertainty and mixed messaging have made it difficult for parents to know if they are making the right decision. 

Cllr Venner tells us about the support available in Leeds and what schools in the area are doing to support their students back into education.
 

For those families who have found themselves at the centre of more arguments over the past few months as a result of Covid-19 pressure, this podcast aims to provide you with the support and advice to help you through it, as Cllr Venner reminds us the importance of not turning your home “into a warzone” when home schooling. 

With figures showing 25% of children that were in need of mental health support didn’t have access to support during the crisis, it begs the question ‘what is the extent of the damage from this virus?’
