Hello Everyone,

Over the holiday, the HeadStart team will be taking a break and will be off for a few days but we know you may might still want or need to reach out to someone. During the days we aren’t around, there are still lots of places you can go.

Below you can find local and national support available – you do not have to face anything alone.

Take care of yourselves over the festive season.

The full team will be back in January.

See you then!
