We know most days the small things feel just that - small and insignificant. But the small things are actually the big things; a hug between friends, that kind word to someone feeling down, enjoying the sunset after a bad day.
The Small Things Matter campaign is all about supporting you, with tools, tips and a bunch of courage to take the next step for you, however small: every step you take is no step too small. Small steps have big impact.
You can find us out and about (usually on the courtyard) on the first Tuesday of each month talking wellbeing and sharing advice. Expect things like cactus repotting, cups of tea and self-care gifts!
Not only do we have face-to-face events but you can find online support too. Keep checking in with this page for wellbeing resources and little things to help you with your self-care.
