On the first Wednesday of every month, we’ll be focusing on a specific area of wellbeing, with new resources, support and live events. Check back on this page each month for brand new content!

Virtual Worry Box Do you feel like you need a little guidance? Do you have a concern linked to the monthly wellbeing focus? We have launched our Virtual Worry Box, for you to submit your worries, concerns and questions anonymously each month, to get support from Independent Coach Emma Jefferys.
