Here are some of the ways our brilliant Home-Start West Lothian staff members have adapted to working through lockdown! Thank you Emily!
How are you supporting families during this lockdown?
As part of the group work team I continue to deliver group sessions to our families online.
What’s your average day like during lockdown?
We are still super busy and I spend most of my day chatting and connecting with the families we support while also keeping in touch with the team.
What advice would you give families during this time?
Go easy on yourself, there is no rulebook for the current circumstances and we’re all muddling through as best we can. Some days you might be super productive and others you might not- that’s ok!!
What’s your best lockdown tip?
Keep active! I’ve found that focusing on my health and fitness has given me a focus and helped reduce my worries about the current situation.
If you had to pick a lockdown partner who would it be (and why)?
Jay Shetty – He is an ex monk and now spends his time putting his learning into practice, I think he would be a very calming person to be around during such a stressful time (if you have time check out some of his meditation videos!)
