Make Sure You're Covered


 The world can be a confusing place at the best of times, let alone during a pandemic. That's why we've put together this handy roadmap to help you navigate life in Torbay.

As part of the campaign we've put together some resources for young people to help you stay covered with tips on safer sex, careers, skills, education, housing, drug/ alcohol use and of course the dreaded covid-19.
