Helen has a team of peer reviewers who have reviewed Helen’s Headlines resources. Each peer reviewer was chosen for their experience on the topic and, in many instances to check that the material was culturally relevant for a New Zealand, as well as a British, audience. Helen is hugely grateful to each peer reviewer. Like Helen they have each undertaken this on a voluntary basis.
The peer review team currently includes, among others:
