Sarah and her team at Solas Mind have been offering 1-2-1 counselling to our HETV Trainee Finder trainees, First Break and Make a Move participants for those who have felt that they needed someone to speak to in the COVID-19 pandemic. As Sarah has an understanding of the industry, she can absolutely understand the issues that trainees and freelancers face and their current potential anxieties. The sessions have been easy to book and feedback from those who have attended has been positive. Trainees have appreciated that ScreenSkills HETV has ensured that they have had access to this kind of support in this uncertain time and we have really welcomed working with Sarah to provide it
