Workshop dates


We are currently organising dates for late 2023. Sign up to enews to keep up to date. 

Incredibly informative and useful workshop - following the workshop, we will be re-evaluating current practices and assessing our compliance in line with what we've learnt, making amendments to our current practice as required. We would suggest if you work in the sector try and attend one of the workshops as it has been incredibly helpful.
