What to do if you need support during the Christmas break

Friday is the last day of term, and then Nescot will be closed for three weeks for the Christmas break.

You won’t be able to reach the mentoring team or safeguarding officers until college opens again on January 5, but if you need support during that time a number of organisations can help.
