Conference 16/11/17: do you work with people with long-term health conditions?

Through our Advice Partnership work we are organising a conference for people who work with those who have long-term health conditions:

Thursday 16 November 2017, 9.45 – 4, Dorford Centre, Dorchester, DT1 1RR

The programme is practical and informative, and includes workshops on welfare benefits (focus: ESA & PIP), Dorset Advocacy, mental health, Relate services, working with people with Autism, plus speakars from My Health My Way, SOLLA, Poole Health &Wellbeing Collaborative, and Healthwatch – and much more. A number of organisations will have information stands.
