Supporting students through coronavirus: Mhairi Underwood, Head of Community at The Student Room

Between the ages of 14 and 25 years, most young people invest more of themselves in their education than anything else. What happens when the reward for that suddenly becomes uncertain, unknown? The impact of coronavirus on students has been significant as a huge part of their culture and structure suddenly disappeared when education settings mostly shut their doors. Mhairi Underwood shares how The Student Room, the UK’s largest online student community, is supporting children and young people to connect and support each other through uncertainty, with a focus on maintaining hope that things will get better.
