We recognise that during the COVID-19 outbreak many of you will be working in unusually challenging circumstances and experiencing new difficulties in your personal or professional lives.The current Covid19 pandemic can heighten emotions by worries over uncertainty and the unknown. These feelings are perfectly normal and a healthy reaction to a very abnormal situation.

On these pages we have gathered information and resources together to help you and signpost you to routes for support. Please remember the most important rules:

  1. Look after yourself and your own needs
  2. Take time to take a break, get some food and get some sleep
  3. If you need help – ask
