    Feedback from #T2SLive16:

    ‘I am absolutely blown away with this event and thrilled that we’ve got such an amazing organization out there that’s ready to support our teachers and our practioners in their frontline practice because we all know how important self esteem and emotional wellbeing of children is, and the fact that there’s now this very robust and well researched network there for us to access is just incredible. Very impressed!’ 

    ‘I’m really enjoying being here today. It’s been very very inspirational...... it’s important that we all pull together and get these things right for these young people from the start.’
