We're pleased to announce that we're running a second set of regional online community connect sessions, beginning in February 2021. 

What are community connect sessions?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently unable to hold our usual face-to-face regional networking events, and as such, the online community connect sessions are virtually replacing these.

The purpose of these community connect sessions is to bring together NHS Armed Forces champions regionally to share their ideas, thoughts, and good practice with each other. The interactive content of the events will focus on topics and areas of learning led and guided by the needs and interests of each regional network.

Community connect sessions will allow you, as Armed Forces champions, to openly discuss the challenges and rewards you are facing in supporting Armed Forces reservists and the wider community within your workforce.

You will also have the opportunity to network and share good practice, including hearing from NHS organisations that have their pledged to support the recruitment of members of the Armed Forces community into the NHS.

How frequent will the community connect sessions be and how long do they last?

Each session will be delivered on Microsoft Teams and last for 90 minutes. We are currently planning to hold these quarterly but will review this depending on the needs of the network and on the ongoing COVID-19 developments.
