Adult and child social care practitioners, Care providers, the Education and Voluntary Sectors are invited to join us where we will;

  • Raise awareness, improve understanding and provide signposting to key support measures for protecting health and reducing infections/ communicable diseases.
  • Help Social Care practitioners, Care providers and the Voluntary Sector to have conversations with their clients/ residents and service users to support them in making decisions/ choices about protecting their health and improving their health outcomes.
