Parenting in the time of COVID-19? Consider these 6 tips from the WHO
With many families around the world forced to stay at home, the World Health Organization (WHO) has published six one-page tips for parents, covering everything from creating a new routine to managing stress and talking about the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today we launched the Waltham Forest Community Help Network, our way of both supporting our most vulnerable residents directly, as well as providing a way for residents to help each other.
The network will support the fantastic local efforts of the community helping each other. From this week, residents will be able to sign up as a volunteer to help others in need in these groups, a crowdfunding platform to enable donations is in development, and residents are being asked to tell their stories of community kindness across the borough so they can be celebrated and shared with others.
The Community Help Network will be initially focussing efforts on the most vulnerable, with support expected to be developed further over the coming weeks.

Get coronavirus support as an extremely vulnerable person
Register if you have a medical condition that makes you extremely vulnerable to coronavirus. For example, you’ll be able to ask for help getting deliveries of essential supplies like food.
If you’re not sure whether your medical condition makes you extremely vulnerable, register anyway.
You can register yourself, or for someone else.
