  • In addition to our own fantastic Pastoral Care Team, you can also access support from resources such as www.yourneighbour.org. You can call their support line on 0300 323 9952 to find connections to local churches and arrange regular friendly phone calls.

CONNECT

  • Art can serve as both a means of connection and of healing - for maker and audience alike. You can watch here to find out about how artists of all kinds are responding to the pandemic with new creations.

LEARN

  • With such lovely summer weather, a new cocktail or mocktail is the perfect refreshment! You can visit the Royal Voluntary Service’s Virtual Village hall and learn how to make an “English Garden” cocktail or mocktail from the manager of Harrods cocktail bar. You can find the recipe and the lesson here.
  • The Zoological Society of London produces a regular audio documentary (podcast) called Wild Science which delves into topical issues in zoology, conservation and the environment, from saving species and protecting the planet, to finding out about the animals living across the globe, including in London’s own river Thames. You can see the whole selection of episodes here.

DO

  • If you are looking for ideas to be more creative then why not try the Inspiration bank. With short creative tasks to make you more creative, you might decide to see what the most creative thing you can do with a plastic bottle, or go for a walk see how many interesting objects you can spot. Give it a go!
