On Page 6 you will see an invitation to join us for a Zoom chat on recruiting and retaining staff and volunteers. We have had a number of representatives tell us at LPG meetings that they are having difficulties in attracting staff and volunteers to help maintain their great services. Please let us know if you wish to join in the conversation and look at creative ways to overcome this obstacle.

Children’s Mental Health Week will take place from 6 to 12th February 2023,  with this year’s theme being “Let’s Connect”. We therefore invite any service or organisation to promote your work on emotional wellbeing and mental health, by sending information on your service, programme, resources or links that can help connect our readership of practitioners and families. We look forward to hearing from you!
