Kate Flory from Kapow Coaching will be running a one-hour webinar for our sector. Mental health is something we are all familiar with, but most of us are only beginning to understand what mental fitness is about, and how in just 30 seconds we can move from a negative to a positive mindset.
BAVS would like to welcome staff, volunteers and trustees from community groups, charities and social enterprises across the Scottish Borders to attend this free webinar.
How do you conduct a COVID-19 safety risk assessment? This short workshop will take you through the practical steps needed to ensure that COVID-19 hazards are properly assessed and evaluated at your organisation’s premises; and that you are meeting your legal duties towards others (including the public). It is aimed at anyone responsible for health and safety within their charity, community group, or social enterprise.
