GSAB Roadshows 2021
Gloucestershire Safeguarding Adults Board Roadshows 2021
This year's roadshow will inevitably be a bit different to usual, but this gives us the opportunity to bring the roadshow directly to your office, home, garden shed or anywhere with internet access!
We will be providing a week of morning events from Monday 12th to Friday 16th April, via MS Teams, shining a light on safeguarding during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will have a particular focus on the Voluntary and Community Sectors contribution to keeping people safe during this challenging time. Each day will focus on a specific theme, the details of the sessions are below, with separate booking for each day - this will allow you to pick and choose the sessions most suitable to you.
Anyone is welcome and we hope that by providing the sessions in this format we will enable more people to attend than ever before.
