*Due to the Covid-19 pandemic some of our face to face and group wellbeing services and programmes are being affected, where possible we have provided virtual solutions and set up wellbeing instructor calls to existing participants. As soon as we can make it safe to do so we will start to resume face to face wellbeing sessions and look into the feasibility of group sessions in line with government guidance.
