The sessions have been really well attended, which is great to see as it’s clearly a topic on many people’s minds. Apologies to those who came and found it a little bit of a squash, or who couldn’t get a hot drink because the water ran out so quickly!

Thanks go to Amy Gibbons, Jacqueline Young and Ross Dachraoui, who have delivered three informative sessions so far.
