Helpful links

There is a lot of information to navigate online - some sources are better than others. For up-to-date quality information try some of these links. Social Media is also a helpful way to keep up to date with a rapidly evolving situation but remember not all social media accounts are accredited, and there can be misinformation and confusion - try to fact-check if you can, check the source of the information, check the date of the information, and cross check against other sources. It is helpful to be up to date, but it is also essential to switch off and look after yourself - we'll be posting some Wellbeing pages as soon as we can - meantime see links at bottom of list
