Monthly Roundup - January 2024

Written by: ISL

The ISL team across multiple services have started the new year off well in client engagement with a big focus on health & well-being. From nature walks, to cooking classes to well-being through art; it is wonderful to see such a variation of creative thinking and a positive start to 2024. Coach Sean has been working with teams to support with healthy recipes, nutritional advice and exercise motivation over December through to January and staff are utilising these visits and the Coach Sean online library well.
