At the end of July, we held an online networking meeting for voluntary & community sector groups and organisations working with older people across Wealden. Due to its success, we would like extend an invitation to all those delivering services for older people throughout the 3VA area, including Lewes District and Eastbourne to join the network as well.
The next meeting will take place on Tuesday 18 August 2020 at 11:00 am. It will explore the issue of reopening and things to keep in mind for your team and clients. The aim of the session is to help allay your fears as to how to risk assess so that you can confidently reopen.
Jenny Watson, Head of Development at 3VA said:
“It will come as no surprise that the topic for discussion at our first meeting was the challenges around reopening services during the pandemic. Having listened to the questions and concerns that participants had, we have asked Creative Force to develop a short course on reopening safely to try and help groups navigate the rules. We will be running the course at the next meeting.”
The course, Don’t pass it on! Your step by step guide to risk assessing for safe opening of your services, will demystify current Covid-19 guidance and help you determine how it applies to your organisation, ultimately preparing you to reopen your services. Participants will go step-by-step through the process of risk assessing and learn how to create an environment that is as safe as possible for your team and your clients.
We welcome as many groups as possible to attend the network, but because we will be doing training at the next meeting, places are limited to 12. This 90-minute course is delivered by Creative Force in association with 3VA and it is open to any community and voluntary group or organisation.
Please contact us to find out more about the network.
The risk assessment training course itself will also be offered again on 25 August and 8 September – book now.
