We asked 168 children and young people from our programmes about their experience of lockdown. These children and young people were aged from five years old to young adults, they came from families, foster families, small group homes, centres for children, communities, day care and community crisis centres.  

Here is a presentation of their thoughts on the lockdown experience, the challenges and opportunities and their hopes for the future.
