About this Event

This session we have challenged ourselves to raise the bar and build on the quality of what we offer as an organisation. As part of our commitment to raise the quality of experience for children and young people we will be running eight roadshows across the region.

The roadshows will create the opportunity to bring leaders together and offer updates and workshops from both a Regional and Headquarters perspective led by members of staff, key volunteers and external partners including Urban Saints and the Additional Needs Alliance.

All those attending will receive a goody bag containing a range of resources and samples from some of our partners along with a sample pack containing activity cards for the new Under 11's Programme. There will be opportunities to talk to members of staff and key volunteers on a wide range of matters and network with leaders both within and outside your Battalion/District.

There is a registration fee of £5 to attend which includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
