This month’s newsletter brings us back for a new academic year. For many people September is a time for introducing themselves to new groups. For others, working with groups is a year-round way to encourage peer support and to deliver services cost-effectively. Activities here are simply ideas and are not compulsory. You can choose to do some, all or none; it won’t affect your membership of the CDI whether you take up these ideas or not, although they do reflect good practice.
