WEBINARS: FINANCIAL, PARENTING and HEALTH & WELLBEING

Support Network has a range of free webinar topics covering financial issues, parenting concerns and health & wellbeing.

Our financial webinars are delivered by Better With Money, specialists in this area, and we are working in partnership with the ICE Benevolent Fund to bring you these. Regularly reviewing personal finances can be very beneficial to both financial and mental wellbeing.

Our health and wellbeing webinars are delivered by SuperWellness who are a leading provider of nutrition-centred wellbeing services in the UK.  Our parenting webinars are delivered by the Positive Parenting Project, a  social enterprise which aims to bring the benefits of proven evidence-based parenting strategies to as many parents (and children) as possible

The webinars are available to members and their family - you can attend as many as you would like to. (A recording of the webinar is sent to all those who register to attend, so that you can still watch the content if you cannot join the live event, or would prefer to watch it later.)
