Covid-19 and hArt
We are all in the middle of a very challenging situation, and hArt is very aware that people are feeling worried, and we are looking for ways to offer some help and support online.
Please bear with us as we work to put these together on social media and through our website over the coming week or so.
Meantime, have a look at our Facebook page (link above), where the hArt Online Community is ready to welcome you.
Stay safe and well, take care of yourself and your loved ones –
Love from hArt

Please note that while the hArt office is closed during the Corona Virus, calls to our landline are being re-routed to a hArt team member’s mobile, and this is available from 10-4 Monday to Friday. This is not intended to be an advice line, as we are not able to offer this service, but can offer information and contact information about other services who may be able to help you in these challenging times. We hope this helps.
