Welcome to Sangha Care Resources

A starting point for support and resources that are available to current and former students of SL.

As a gesture of support and with an understanding for the many emotions and issues that could arise for individuals as a result of reading the letter to SL of 14th July, 2017 we are listing some resources and helpful links.

These resources are not  exhaustive and we  do not endorse any of the listed organisations. We simply offer them as a starting point because we have either found them beneficial for ourselves, or because they come highly recommended through a couple of trusted charitable networks.
