Training at Community Action Suffolk: Covid-19

The safety and well-being of the participants, trainers and staff at our training, conferences and events has been and always will be our priority, especially during challenging times like these. Our team is working behind the scenes, monitoring the situation, following government guidance and actively developing new ways of providing you with the training that you need at this time.

While our training, conferences  and events unfortunately have had to be postponed until at least 1st June 2020, we are working with our training and event partners to see how and when best to reschedule each event. As you can appreciate, this takes time especially as the situation and duration of  ‘lockdown’ is still developing. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate our way through this time.

In the meantime, please see below for more detailed guidance:

  • For future events that are still scheduled there’s nothing you need to do. If anything changes, we will contact you with updates.
  • If your event has been postponed, we are working to identify new dates, and we will contact you as soon as we have confirmation and more information this.
  • If your event has been cancelled, there’s also nothing you need to do. We’ll get in touch with you directly with more information.

If you have any queries please email: training@communityactionsuffolk.org.uk

On this page you will find training and events that are available online. There are two sections; ‘Online and on demand’ which you can access at a time that suits you and work through them at your own pace; the other section has the ‘Online sessions’ that you need to pre-book and which are facilitated online using a secure video link by a Trainer/Professional.
