Events


All our events continue to run virtually due to COVID-19.

Our priority is to help local services ensure that they can provide people with the care they need. We do not think it is appropriate to divert staff time during this time of increased activity for the health and care sector.

We will continue to assess the viability of face to face events in line with current Government and Public Health guidelines. Contact the Skills for Care events team for any enquiries. *Read our Zoom security measures
