Davpack – a new partner finding new ways to support us
Earlier this year, we established a new partnership with Davpack, one of the leading online suppliers of packaging in the UK. The partnership initially focused on developing an online resource for use in primary schools, to help children find the right help for the problems they may be facing at home or at school.
The resource, available to download from Davpack’s website, is based around a character called ‘Barry the Box’.31 Oct 2014
