    Great question you have asked @natalierobinson. Unfortunately, one of the eligibility criteria is living in England or Wales.

    Could we ask you if you would feel comfortable sharing a little more with us about what makes you interested in this opportunity?

    I am just interested in seeing if we can still support you and provide you with what you were hoping for. Please feel free to let us know more and we will see what we can do to help  :)

    Hi @natalierobinson, I apologise for my late reply to you.

    Do you live overseas permanently or do you maintain an address in England or Wales?
