The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures for dealing with it have worsened the vulnerable situation of the children and families involved in our socioeducational centres. That is why we have continued to care for them from the beginning, first remotely and then in person, to give them educational and emotional support and ensure their well-being.
Every day, time is spent doing homework, resolving queries, doing extra reading and working on dynamics for acquiring study techniques. At the same time, the children and young people have the chance to use computers for doing their work, as most of them do not have them at home.
Educators have detected anxiety and stress among some children and young people due to their families’ economic situation and because of the conditions in which they have had to undergo lockdown.
The socioeducational centres organise dynamics for managing and working on all these experiences and emotions.
If a child or young person has to go into quarantine or self-isolate for the period established by the health authorities, they will still be helped remotely, throughout the year, and offered academic and emotional support.
SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES
Employment issues (temporary lay-offs or the cancellation of illegal contracts) that prevent essential payments being made are resolved. Financial aid provided by institutions and authorities is also allocated (via prepayment cards).
Many individuals, companies and organisations gave us the materials needed to support and protect children and families in the best possible conditions.
