Staff: responding to the current situation in Ukraine and Russia
Our community is deeply affected by the shocking situation in Ukraine. Many of us have close links to Ukraine and Russia, or have direct experiences of conflicts in other parts of the world. It is natural to feel fear, worry, distress and worry about what is happening. Everyone reacts differently, and it's also OK if you feel or think something different to what you expect or to other people around you.
We have put together some resources with some advice and information that you might helpful:
