COVID-19: Children, young people and families - December 2020 Evidence Summary

The Scottish Government

This briefing is the fifth in a series of evidence summaries on the impact of COVID-19 on the wellbeing of children and families in Scotland, drawing on wider UK and international research where appropriate. As with previous briefings, the scope is fairly broad to cover a wide range of policy interests. This month, there are some new Scottish studies on how children and young people are feeling since returning to school, as well as new research exploring the experiences of ‘seldom heard from’ young people, and survey research on the prevalence of online bullying during lockdown.
