Temporary Waitlist Closure for WRAP support

We regret to announce that Mind in Bradford must temporarily close our waiting list for support from the WRAP service. This means we cannot accept new referrals for those services for now.

In the meantime, please note that children and young people can still access other Mind in Bradford and external services. Please see details in the “Get alternative support now” section below.

We have also produced a resource pack for schools:
