A youth group providing vital support and social interaction for children is continuing to meet needs during lockdown.
The Swan Youth project in Downham Market is ensuring children in the town and surrounding areas are not left without vital support, despite the challenges of social distancing.
The group have had around 395 contacts with young people since the start of lockdown.
It has used social media and Zoom meetings in order to continue providing one to one support to children and have been sending out pamper packs to those in need.
Anna Foster, project manager, said: “It is going well and we are managing to keep in contact mostly via WhatsApp and Zoom.
