Home-Start’s Family Matters webinars are back in March and we’re inviting you to join us for 30 minutes of time to focus on important themes for every family. They are free, but places are limited, and you must register to attend.
In this series of lunchtime webinars, we will explore issues common to all families and share hints and tips for a happy and healthy family life. Each session will finish with a Q&A.
Join us from your desk, eat your lunch and take 30 minutes to focus on an important family issue. As this is a webinar rather than a zoom call, you will be watching or listening anonymously. Any questions you post can be posted anonymously too.
