I will be taking a break from the website and social media channels between Tuesday 22nd December and Tuesday 5th January.* Scheduled content will appear at intervals but messages might not be reviewed and any “live” posting will be at my discretion.
I have listed below, responses to the most common matters that I receive enquiries about each year over the festive period, plus links to supports for those who may need them.
WISHING ALL SPONSORS AND WEBSITE USERS A PEACEFUL & SAFE CHRISTMAS AND ALL THE BEST FOR A BRIGHTER NEW YEAR.
