We understand that with restrictions now beginning to lift there is a desire to return to work as soon as possible. We know times will have been difficult but we believe in putting, both physical and mental, health and wellbeing first. We recommend only returning to the workplace when the government advice says it is safe to do so, and when you have a risk assessment and clear procedures in place.

What we can do now is get ready for when we can return to doing what we do best, bringing joy and smiles to our little and not so little clients!
