Be the voice to say - how it has been done is done!

It is time to open big doors of wellbeing, support and career planning wide.

It is time to move from this, to this...

To this...

Boarding Support

Be true to who you are

How do we do this?

One voice at a time. One voice for change can make a big impact.

Now, how are you going to use yours?

Staying silent does not work anymore. With the recent research in mental health and wellbeing, 1 in 4 adults at any one time, that means that 25% of our boarding staff community can be affected at any one time.

In turn, this affects our boarding teams, boarders and people who are important in our personal lives. Your journey as a boarding practitioner often has little support and I understand that.

Let me ask you this

Who is the one person in your professional life that is helping you move forward?

Who is giving you the support that you need to be the best version of yourself on the front line?

Sadly, many boarding practitioners like you would give the same answer – no one.

So, how it has always been done is DONE !

Having worked with boarding practitioners around the world independently, I hear stories that have made me very sad but very inspired. Sad to hear their story about how things have been for them, but I hold the upmost respect for them as they continue to get up and keep running their houses in the face of adversity. They came to me, a stranger to ask for help as no one was helping them in their boarding communities. Helping them to move forward has been an honour and privilege. Making tomorrow better for someone is one of the biggest acts of kindness you can give.  Boarding climate change needs to happen for all of us to be sustainable. It is time to create human boarding communities around the world.

How can you use your voice?

Join us in a Boarding Blether!

What is a boarding ‘blether’?

Forever Scottish, it is time to go back to my roots to help move boarding forward. A blether is about a conversation. A good blether can help us through a tough time, give us the confidence to overcome a hurdle or just put a smile on our face at the end of a long boarding day.

You blether with yourself everyday with your self talk, which is having a major impact on your thoughts.

Your thoughts drive your behaviour and daily life. So, whatever you do make them positive!

How can you use your voice?
