Mental Health

We aim to respond to the identified needs of the local area by providing training opportunities that have an impact for your setting.

We aim to continue to support schools to access training by trying to run sessions at no cost. This has been largely facilitated to date by the generosity of The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, and through partnership with the City of York Council.
