This is a 2 hour course which can be emotional, a willingness to share with others is important. It is not necessary to reveal personal issues but the attendees must be willing to engage with exercises.
HVA will be holding our first Zoom HCN themed event – Learning From Lockdown - on Friday 18th September, 1pm-2.30pm. We would like to hear what you as an organisation has learnt from having to work in these challenging circumstances: Have you relied on volunteers to keep things running? Have you used the internet or social media to carry out your work, at home or in your normal place of work? What will you carry on doing going forward? To share your learning and to hear about new ways of working, please book yourself a place by following the link: www.hastingsvoluntaryaction.org.uk/events
The aim of this course is to be introduced to legislation regarding health and safety and appreciate the link between risk, assessment of risk and positive support for the individual.
