We have launched our Headstart initiative to help you get to know us and prepare practically for your transition to Huish; combining tasks to complete at home, our usual Welcome to Huish event and informative videos to answer any questions you may still have.

We are here to support you throughout this transition so don’t be afraid to ask us anything.
