Resources for Young People

Managing Transitions, Uncertainty and Change

Back to School Edition (September 2020)

This the second toolkit in our Managing Transitions, Uncertainty and Change series. The Back to School edition is designed to help young people transition back to school in the healthiest way possible for them.

Summer Holiday Edition (July 2020)

Everyone manages transition, uncertainty and change differently. This toolkit is a guide to help young people manage change in the healthiest way possible during the summer holidays, as they start to think about going back to school.


Being isolated in lockdown and having big changes to our normal lives is likely to cause young people to feel anxious, worried and scared. This is normal, and there are things that young people (and the people they live with) can do to make this time as manageable as possible. To stay well when everything is changing we need to look after our emotions and our bodies.

We have created a wellbeing toolkit specifically for young people at this time.

Webinar Support

Like many, Khulisa is concerned about the impact of Covid-19 on the safety and wellbeing of young people, particularly those who were already vulnerable before the pandemic. We believe that addressing and nurturing young people’s social and emotional wellbeing is key to managing Covid-19 related uncertainty and transitioning safely from lockdown.

We are determined to reach and support as many young people online as we can at this time. That’s why we have designed 5 webinars exploring the following topics related to social and emotional well-being; Exploring Beliefs, Managing Triggers, Wellbeing & Coping Skills, Exploring Emotions, and Resilience. Each webinar is 60 minutes long and appropriate for a maximum group size of 8.

How do you refer young people to the webinars?

Live Webinars and/or 1:1 support* have the same referral form: you can indicate whether a young person you are referring is appropriate for group work (webinars), 1:1 support or both. For group work please identify a cohort of young people before referring – we will then be in touch to arrange a webinar time and discuss promoting the session. Please use the referral link for school partners here. If you are a community partner please contact Khulisa directly at

As always, please ensure you have the permission of the young person before submitting a referral.

We are also running a 5-week series of webinars during the summer. Our webinars use interactive and use elements of storytelling, debating and artwork to increase trust and connection between participants and social and emotional wellbeing.
