With this in mind they are launching a regular Blog and Vlog through theKent Sport webpage以及社交媒体渠道以及我们的大学合作伙伴网页。内容的广度将为不同级别，能力和年龄段的信息和指导提供信息和指导，并试图考虑您所发现的不同环境。
Some content may not be helpful for everyone but they will endeavor to provide a broad range utilizing the talent, expertise and personalities they have available at Kent Sport and help you stay on track.
They will also provide some useful links and signpost other services and material that may be useful.

Helping and supporting others is essential in times of crisis.NCVO支持志愿部门和志愿服务，对您在冠状病毒爆发期间参与社区的方式有一些很好的建议：
Look out for your neighbours
- stretched medical staff and volunteers
Remember it’s a marathon not a sprint – your help will be even more crucial in a few weeks’ time. For now, the best thing to do is to check in on neighbours.
- Keep washing your hands often for 20 seconds.
- Stay at least two metres away from people you’re helping.
- If you’re helping someone with very serious issues – don’t be afraid to flag with appropriate statutory services.
- Offer to run errands for people but stay outside of people’s homes.
- Don’t take on too much – it’s often better not to offer at all than to let someone down.
Volunteer with organisations providing support
Charities are working with the government and local authorities to create ways for people to get involved.
- 如果您在当地没有特定的慈善机构，请与当地联系志愿者中心,CVS或参观Do-it website。
- You can sign up toNHS Volunteer Responderswho are supporting the NHS during the covid-19 outbreak.. Once you’ve registered and checks are complete – you’ll be provided a log-in to the GoodSAM Responder app.
支持慈善机构，包括志愿者或受托人would be incredibly valuable to help keep their work going.
Getting involved locally
为什么不查看地方议会的网页？肯特县议会的网站has a ‘How Can I Help?’ section with a handy list of local authorities in Kent and links to the sort of volunteering support they’re after. And you can register to help in and around Medway on the梅德威Voluntary Action网站。
The first thing to do is to establish a routine and stick to it. Children find routine very reassuring and calming so keep your getting-up, meal and bed times the same as normal and make sure that school work is still getting done.
Get your own studying done during evenings and mornings when your children are asleep or having some down time. You could get a head start by planning what you will study at each time.
If you have more than one child then try to find time while you are isolated to have parent one-to-ones with each of your kids. This could be hot chocolate or breakfast together, reorganising a room, anything that gives opportunity for conversation.
Make the most of having the children at home by involving them in the day to day running of the house – even nursery-age children are able to help with washing-up, dusting and laundry, so you don’t need to wear yourself out whilst they zone out in front of the TV.
If you can balance childcare or caring responsibilities with a partner please consider doing so. In the event that you are finding it impossible to balance childcare or caring responsibilities, or any other issue with your studies, please contact your School Support Office to discuss your individual concerns.
Our Postal Services team is currently operating a reduced service and is not undertaking scheduled deliveries and collections around Campus. Anyone who needs to collect incoming mail or deliver outgoing mail for posting can arrange this by telephoning the Estates Post Room on 01227 823210. The opening times are between 8am and midday, Monday to Friday (except bank holidays).
对于可能造成的任何不便，我们深表歉意。如果您在01227 816666或通过电子邮件。Alternatively you can find useful information on the庄园网站。
During this suspended delivery period, the L&OD team will continue to work on enhancing our online training options as well as ensuring that arrangements are put in place for rearranging postponed training and development activities. Our Session Leads are currently assessing whether there are resources we can point you towards in the absence of the face-to-face sessions.
Staff are not required to action anything at this stage; we will be working on alternative dates for activities and will communicate these to staff affected by the cancelled activity directly in due course.
We will continue to follow the University’s guidance, along with Government, NHS and Public Health England advice and provide regular updates as the situation develops.
We have reached the end of yet another week during which you have had to further adapt to the challenges of new ways of learning and living. I realise this is a challenging time for all of you as you adapt and adjust to the reality of the impact of COVID-19 on your day-to day-life.
I know many of you have had to return home earlier than you had planned or hoped, leaving behind the many friends you have made here in Canterbury and Medway.
For those of you who remain on our campuses or in your houses and flats locally, you are also adjusting to the new rules of staying home and following the rules of social distancing.
I also know you have a lot of concerns about your final assessments and examinations. Please be assured that we have been working hard to protect your educational outcomes and minimise the impact of the changes we are having to make as we move teaching, learning and examinations, where needed, online.
Yet, despite being in such difficult times, I have been witness to acts of kindness, compassion, resilience and ingenuity over the past days as you have supported each other and put in place new ways of keeping your relationships close whilst spending time apart.
我将在未来的几天和几周内继续为所有学生提供定期更新。有关包括肯特联盟在内的大学社区的进一步更新学生新闻和the冠状病毒 - 学生的信息pages. Please让我们更新至于新闻报道，我们可以分享所有这些伟大的社区活动。

The pilot is being broadcast on Saturday 28 March at 21.30, where she will provide insights into how language can not only bring us together, but also create national outcry; and that though some words may be a term of endearment in some cultures, they can be a damning insult in others.
