Health and Wellbeing

Your health and wellbeing is of central importance.  If you are not healthy, you put yourself at risk when you support others.  Self care is caring for others too.  We're just starting this page now, but aim to create a comprehensive list of resources, tools, activities and resources to help you care for your self, and also to help you help others.  We're also creating a space to share memes and social media resources to share with your network.  Feel free to send in your contributions and ideas to: @email .

If you need urgent help please call  Emergency: 000 or if you are on a mobile 112
