CREATE initiatives to support children during COVID-19

CREATE is producing a series of short animations targeted at children in out-of-home care about COVID-19 in which CREATE’s mascot Gus explains what’s happening with Coronavirus to children aged 5-12 years in a fun and interesting way. The first episode explains what coronavirus is, the second episode explains social distancing, the third episode is especially for kids in residential care, and more episodes are due to be released in the coming weeks. CREATE has also released a series of video tutorials with fun craft projects for children and young people, including a rainbow unicorn, a bunny, a fun flamingo, a pinatapaper flowers, and more. The CREATE website also has an FAQ section for young people under 18 years of age in residential care who may have concerns about what coronavirus is and how it could affect them.

CREATE also invites children and young people to submit questions they have about COVID-19 and impacts on the care system at the CREATE Instagram page. Questions have already been posted about how young people can receive assistance that they usually receive in person, and tips about maintaining good mental health during isolation.
