Energize helps you stay connected

21st May 2020

We are all trying to make the best of being in lockdown. It might be all you can do to just get by right now. We understand the challenges of balancing intense work patterns, child care arrangements and homeschooling, health fears and bereavement.

Here's a reminder of all the resources and support that you already have access to through your Energize subscription - and the great news is our team are working harder than ever to ensure you can continue to serve those in your groups...
