Our live online interactive sessions have limited spaces. If you wish to cancel or move your place to an alternative date (subject to availability) please inform us 5 calendar days in advance by emailing This allows us to offer your place to another person. In the unlikely event that we have to cancel a session, we will let you know as soon as possible.

Please note we do not record our live interactive session and are therefore unable to provide any recordings. We are unable to provide handouts however the Resources section on the training platform has links to many Lullaby Trust publications.
