Wellbeing this winter

More support groups for staff – join our bereavement group and financial wellbeing group

One of the big lessons of the pandemic is that we are all finding things difficult in different ways, and that talking about this is a great way of processing and coping with our challenges. That’s why we’re building on the successes of our current support groups by adding two new groups; for bereavement and for finances. These groups are here to support you however would be helpful for you. Some attend to just listen to others experiences, others find it helpful to share their stories and their feelings. All our groups are facilitated by members of the wellbeing and Resolve teams and further support is available 1-1 for any of these areas. Our groups run as follows:

-          Bereavement & grief support group: last Wednesday of each month, 2.30pm - 4.00pm

-          Financial Wellbeing Group: First Wednesday of each month, 3.30pm - 4.30pm

-          Virtual School Gate, parents support group: Every Thursday at 9.30am

-          Shielders support group: Every Monday at 11.00am

-          Nutrition support group: Every other Tuesday at 4.00pm

To access any of the groups please email for invites
