We are deeply saddened by the situation in Ukraine and our heart-felt thoughts are with the Ukrainian people here and abroad.

The safety and wellbeing of people across the region is clearly the key concern.

The catastrophic circumstances taking place in Europe and the global impacts is another inevitable worry. In situations that we can’t directly influence it’s natural to seek solace in what we can control. We’ve created this space to provide information for you and your clients.

If needed you can also point your clients to our Health and Wellbeing Line which offers in-the-moment support from trained counsellors.
