Webinar support for young people

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.
