On tonight’s DXTL Podcast show we discuss no holidays? Coaching at grassroots football, social distancing mental health and the NSPCC, being rather busy regarding our children so, Safeguarding needs to be remembered and still acted upon.
Life expectancy is falling for the poorest for the first time in 100 years. As child poverty rises, children and young people in the poorest parts of our country are two to three times more likely to experience poor mental health than those in the richest.
After the 2008 credit crunch it was the most vulnerable in our communities who experienced the severest consequences of austerity, with devastating effects on their mental and physical health. This is not the hallmark of a kind society. We must not make the same mistakes after this pandemic.
It is nice to be back with the DXTL, Grassroots Podcast weekender show. We remember the Manchester Arena bombing 3 years to the day, 22 people lost their lives with many injured and traumatized.
We also chat about a couple of referees what they have been getting up to during lockdown.
