Online Communities

There are lots of groups on Reddit that almost act as support groups and online communities for those who are going through similar difficulties as you may be. For example here is a link to a group of people sharing advice and tips on home-schooling during lockdown. If you search “Reddit” plus any sort of community or advice you are looking for (e.g. reddit home-schooling lockdown UK) you will often find a discussion on there and can ask your own questions if you have any. You will need to sign up with an account to do this.
