Free COVID-19 Family Activity Packs that will help to reduce the feeling of isolation and encourage families to interact in a fun and productive manner

Meltham Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We need your support to put together a minimum of 3000 free COVID-19 Family Activity Packs that can be delivered to families in need due to their own personal circumstances or financial position. At a time such as now we forget that no family is the same and some families require support and intervention due to domestic violence and child safeguarding issues and at a time where people are undergoing lockdown means that tensions are pushed to their limits and require intervention to help keep things safe. The packs will consist of a wide range of activities, crafts, games and informational websites where families can find more fun and interact in a positive and productive way. The packs will also be reusable and can add or change the rules to create diversity.

What we'll deliver:

  • 3000 COVID-19 Family Activity Packs
  • Delivered to families identified as in need by local official COVID-19 hubs
  • Supporting a local charity to support local people

Why it's a great idea:

Steps to get it done:
