Covid 19 update from 6heads

In times of crisis and in the face of the extraordinarily challenging global situation we are all in it is more important for us to stay connected and work together.

For the time being all of our in person events are postponed and we are adapting to a digital programme.

To begin with here are 12 ways to support local communities, connect with us, start your day and online learning and resources for collective positive impact.

We will be keeping up regular posts through our website, facebook and twitter.
