“It was a pleasure to have Eleanor Ellerslie and Linda Warwick, from the “Somewhere For Us” project team at the reception to talk about the project and the opportunities to work with organisations and schools, providing much needed support to children and young people who have been coping with their grief during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
