service infoIn the interest of customer and employee safety during the outbreak, we have reduced our customer-facing services as follows: 

Visits: our office is currently closed and staff are working from home where possible. 

Training and Events: all face-to-face and on premises training has been cancelled until further notice for both Volunteer Practice and Disclosure Services training. As an alternative, we have expanded our range of online sessions available.

Meetings: all face-to-face meetings or travel to meetings have been cancelled until  further notice. Remote conferencing will be used as an alternative where possible.
