Re-opening premises and risk assessing – for charities and community groups

Thursday 9 July 2020

Following much demand, we’re holding another session on re-opening your premises. We will be looking at how your charity or community group might go about this after the restrictions have eased and what you might need to consider both now and in the longer term, as the situation around the pandemic continues.

The session will include:

1. Introduction and overview of government guidance and risk assessments

2. Speaker: Francesca Yates, Manager of Communicare, who run an advice and information centre from a physical premises. They have re-opened on a revised basis with control measures in place.(Read more about them here)

3. Break-out sessions to discuss the above and your own ideas with other trustees and managers.

4. Q&A and wrap up

The session will give you plenty of time to discuss in the break-out sessions and we hope you’ll go away with some ideas and pointers on how your group might plan and navigate re-opening your premises and your in-person sessions.

Please note that the session will be available for a maximum of 12 attendees to enable as much interaction as possible and we ask that a maximum of 2 people attend from one charity or community group. If there is further demand, we can hold another session.

The session will be facilitated by Herjeet Randhawa, RVA’s Advice Worker. Herjeet has a background in Legal and Governance, and supports charity’s to work towards good governance as well as running the advice service and overseeing training.
