Programme Day 1 21 March 2017 

If you are a member of an Access Panel you can claim costs of travel and accommodation through your own Access Panel Grant.  It will also be a chance to meet other people involved in the same type of work as you.  Being able to network with other Access Panels means that you can share ideas and support one another.  You don’t need to worry if you’ve never taken part in training like this before.  The day will cater for those who have experience and those who don’t.

If you are interested in attending this course, please contact Gillian Smith Tel: 01259 272064 or Email: Don’t forget to tell us your communication, access and dietary requirements.
