  • Dive into the Equitable Access to Wellbeing knowledge and skills framework (EAW), reflecting on how you and your organisation can use it to improve practice.
  • Provide Professional Development sessions, presented by experts (both clinical and lived experience), on topics of value to the group.
  • Challenge and inspire you to lead within your organisations and the sector.
  • Provide a community for professionals where you can connect, collaborate, and share practical innovations.
  • Reflect on workforce wellbeing. Discussing strategies to improve the sector’s health and combat burnout.
  • Create an enjoyable event.
