HELPLINES FOR SETTINGS AND FAMILIES

 8 things they've now made FREE online that you used to pay for - audiobooks, maths lessons, fitness classes, box sets and more
 

To help the millions of people having to stay home, many companies have made stuff free that you normally pay for, both for kids and grown-ups. We've done a round-up of some of the best online freebies - here are some headlines:

1.     Enjoy 100s of free Audible kids' audiobooks, incl Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland and The Secret Garden Norm £11-£15. Handy if you're struggling with home-schooling or entertaining the kids, as they're available for as long as schools are closed. See Audible Stories.
 

2.     Free workouts for 6 weeks with Chris HemsworthNorm £23/mth. The actor (aka Thor from the Marvel films), known for his ripped abs, has free high intensity (HIIT) and other online workout classes right now - see free fitness classes.

free Joe Wicks daily kids' fitness classes.
 

3.     Free meditation sessions created for the crisis. Norm £50-£60/yr. The Headspace and Calm apps, which normally require a subscription, have both released free content to help with understandable stress and anxiety right now. Free meditation & mindfulness resources
 

4.     New free box sets to binge on via iPlayer, eg, SpooksWallander, French & Saunders and The MissingInstead of Amazon, Apple, Netflix etc subscriptions. The iPlayer service is free for those with a TV licence anyway, and the BBC has added more box sets because of the demand, incl the quartet above. Free box sets
