- involvement with schools, local organisations, societies, clubs and other groups in the local population
- hosting specialist training and study days

We run annual courses, study days and other events. Some are open to all and some are restricted to medical and nursing colleagues.
We accept placements of social worker students from Bournemouth University and Southampton Solent University and will consider similar applications from others.
We hope that there is something suitable for everyone – whether you are a senior healthcare professional or a relative/carer.
