  • Use social media to connect with friends and family
  • Watch films, videos and listen to music
  • Keep fit by joining online classes
  • Learn a new skill by joining courses or webinars

Easy ways you can stay connected include:

  • Video calling friends and family
  • Sending a simple 'hello' or 'hope you're well' text message
  • Doing quiz nights / group video calls on Zoom
  • Using social media to stay updated and connected with friends
  • Celebrating occasions - virtual birthday parties are all the range nowadays!
