There are seven special teddy awards to be presented this year, including a newly created Lifetime Achievement Award, so if you know someone who deserves one of these then nominate them today. The Spring edition also includes a feature on our Special Smiles Dental Training and a two-page feature on Five Ways to Wellbeing which highlights five lifestyle areas that we can all learn to improve to help us feel good. Loss and change are an inevitable part of life for everyone but they can be particularly hard for care experienced children and young people. The magazine also includes a two page feature written by Anne Wilson, Head of Development, on how to help children cope with loss and change.
