Practice guide for Support Staff



Throughout this uncertain period we remain fully committed to continuing to support the many people and organisations that we work alongside, and to putting our vision and values into practice. For the foreseeable future we will need to do things a little differently. We’ll be postponing our usual group events, including forum and network meetings and training sessions, and minimising our face-to-face meetings.We’ll be making the best possible use of all the resources available to us – our skills, resources and networks locally and nationally – to help everyone we work alongside to overcome the challenges we now face.We will make every effort to remain in contact with you, to enable you to share your challenges, resources and experiences with each other, while continuing to provide you with essential information and learning and development opportunities.
