We would like to advise you of a scheme that is operating by Citizen Advice and is supporting people in Kent who are struggling financially or need support to manage the rising cost of living through its new Money Advice Hub.

THE BIG ASK
The Children’s commissioner’s The Big Ask survey highlighted how important supporting children’s mental health was to those surveyed, with one in five children overall saying they were unhappy, making it a top issue for children. As a way to promote this and gauge the feelings and thoughts of children in settings they have developed two flyers for you to use. Let’s talk about your feelings – primary and Let’s talk about your feelings – secondary.
