As coronavirus is a major topic of discussion on the tv, radio and in our homes - the children may have some questions or worries.  It is very difficult to stop them hearing the news or our discussions with friends -  no matter how hard we try.  Below are links to different organisations that might be helpful.  Check them first to see which you think might be suitable for your child.
