The Covid-19 pandemic has created a global public health crisis that is having and will continue to have a profound impact on every area of life. Many services for children and families will face significant disruption, as a wide range of services – such as parenting classes, home visiting programmes, youth work, counselling services and school-based services – have traditionally been delivered face-to-face.

This EIF webinar, originally broadcast on 12 May 2020, covers:

  • the evidence on virtual and digital delivery of interventions across a range of relevant domains
  • the challenges and risks associated with remote delivery methods
  • the findings from an EIF survey asking intervention developers and providers about their response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Presenters Jack Martin and Hannah Wilson also answer some pre-submitted questions from viewers.
