COVID-19’s impact on Victoria’s children and young people

COVID-19’s impact on Victoria’s children and young people​New findings detailing the impact of COVID-19 on the lives of Victoria's children and young people have been released.

Presented in three snapshots, the Commission for Children and Young People's (CCYP's) findings span themes of safety, mental health and education and reveal a picture of growing uncertainty and isolation.

CCYP consulted with more than 600 children and young people, and with more than 170 workers from 70 organisations to understand the pandemic's impact on younger members of our community.

Schools looking for insights into the issues affecting children through the remote learning period will find the snapshots useful.
