Despite the ongoing situation of COVID-19, it’s important that people across the world feel connected, engaged and busy during this period of uncertainty.

Our new event: Mental Health & Wellbeing ONLINE will begin on the 18th May and run until 21st May, with lots on offer from the comfort of your living room!
What to expect?
From 10am – 12pm on Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th May we will be running FREE online conference sessions featuring a range of speakers, with a partner charity selected every day.
On Thursday 21st, we will be running a six-hour conference from 9am – 3pm with a fantastic line-up of mental health experts for just £10 per ticket! (A percentage of all ticket sales will be donated to our three featured charities from earlier in the week)
