Get In Touch

We want you to stay connected with our Get In Touch letter writing challenge, introduced by TV presenter Dan Walker.

As a household, we would like you to #GetInTouch with somebody who may be isolated at this time. Reach out to an older relative, friend or neighbour by writing them a letter that will brighten their day. You could write about football, your hobbies, family or ask them how they are at the moment.



Download our free Connecting Generations letter writing pack full of activity sheets and great ideas to help you to get started.



We’d love to hear who you have written your letter to, so let us know and send us a picture on Twitter to @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars and #GetInTouch, or email PLPrimaryStars@premierleague.com  

You could be our Star of the Week, be in our community story or be featured on premierleague.com, so make sure you get involved!

You can also check out our home learning section for more great activities and ideas.

Safety while your children take part in this activity

While we want children and young people to use their initiative and to be creative with their communication, it is important they follow social distancing guidelines and stay safe.

Safety tips

  • Parents/carers should stay engaged and support their children, particularly if taking part online or by phone.
  • Think carefully about what is uploaded or shared on social media platforms.
  • Keep personal information private and take care not to give away too much identifiable information in photos and videos.
  • Make sure you have permission to take and share photos or videos of relatives, friends or neighbours.
  • Children and young people should never meet up with anyone they don’t know in real life without a parent/carer present.
  • It is important to talk to your child regularly about online safety. Let them know they can come to you or another trusted adult if they’re feeling worried, pressured, upset or unsafe.

Children and young people can visit ChildLine for advice or support about a wide range of issues. Parents/carers can visit Internet Matters for online safety advice and support.
