In Home Support Resources

One of the outcomes of COVID-19 is the need to spend more time at home. Consequently, as previously mentioned the Hearth Team has developed a list of specific “COVID-19 Digital Activities” from around the world which may assist to create an activity plan which helps manage the time inside the home.
