Community Development and End of Life Care Conference

This conference is FREE to attend and is open to everyone, funded by NHS England.


OVERVIEW

We all need to be comfortable around talking about dying. As community workers of all varieties – librarians, support workers, befrienders, housing officers, vicars – whatever role you undertake, you may have conversations with people around death, end of life care and future plans.   You may want to do this with more confidence and support people through this, knowing the right things to say.

FREE CIEH Level 2 Award in Food Safety (ONLINE)

To access this training course you must be a member of Support Staffordshire or Staffordshire Council of Voluntary Youth Services.


Everyone who works with food has a special responsibility for safeguarding the health of consumers and ensure that the food they serve or sell is perfectly safe to eat.

CIEH qualifications have been developed to address the growing need to make learning more relevant to specific business environments and meet the National Occupational Standards.
