The focus of this evidence review is the socio-economic impact on children due to measures to curtail the spread of Coronavirus over the first six months of the period of restrictions, with a particular focus on the restrictions that were brought in towards the end of March 2020 known as the ‘lockdown’ period, lasting approximately three months. Many restrictions remain and are likely to continue for some time and our review considers many of these. Our cut-off for evidence considered is endSeptember 2020.
