Youth workers across Perth and Kinross are using social media and apps in efforts to combat social isolation during the coronavirus lockdown.
Their aim is to use digital technology to help increase the health and wellbeing of young people in the area by enabling them to complete various challenges and engage with others online.
Groups across Perthshire have got on board with the initiative, including The Breathe Project, Perth YMCA and the Coupar Angus Youth Activities Group (CAYAG).
Improvement Officer, Services for Young People with Perth & Kinross Council, Brian Hutton said: “The Coronavirus lockdown can cause anxiety for many young people and it’s great to see so many organisations that we work with and support finding innovative ways to help people through the lockdown.”
Through this initiative, users will have access to newsletters on how young people have been dealing with the outbreak as well as details on how to keep busy.
Young people will also receive employability support, exercise classes and free online courses.
A spokesperson for The Breathe Project said: “We have developed an online programme, helping young people stick to a semblance of normal routine.
“We are fortunate that we have a staff team and volunteers to enable all this good work to happen.”
A spokesperson at Perth YMCA added: “Digital Technology allows young people to stay connected during an isolated time.
“Young people can still take part in their favourite activities, gain qualifications and stay healthy thanks to the digital opportunities available.”
