Postponed: Closer to Home roadshow on Thursday 12 March
Due to a high number of organisations having to divert resources to support vulnerable clients, it has been decided to postpone the Closer to Home event scheduled Thursday 12 March 2020 at St Martin’s Public Hall.
Updated details on the event will be provided when it is rearranged.
