While digital technology enables people to stay connected during the COVID-19 lockdown, young people in Victoria now find themselves socially isolated with little to no contact with other people face-to-face.

The latest survey by Youth Affairs Council Victoria found that social disconnection has been the biggest impact of COVID-19 on Victorians aged 12 to 25, while it exacerbates existing issues that many young people have faced.
