Staying connected whilst we're apart

Stay connected newsletter

Academy newsletter

Even though we need to be physically distant from each other at the moment, we can stay socially connected in other ways. With this in mind, we are producing a fortnightly communication to share with you what our team and community members are up to, plus different ways that you can still get involved.

If you have any ideas, themes or highlights that we should include in future editions, we'd love to hear from you:
