The Partnership along with the Local Resilience Forum, West Yorkshire Prepared, will host ‘The Shielding Experts’ webinar on Wednesday 3 February (10.00am to 11.30am), providing a valuable opportunity to listen to people about their experiences of shielding in 2020.

Attendees will hear insight from research and surveys, and the personal experiences of those who shielded, including staff, to inform our health and care practice this winter and beyond. The aim is to support people who work across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to put the right conditions in place to enable those with the highest clinical risk stay happy, healthy and safe.

This session is suitable for people who work across the health and care sector or anyone involved in the shielding response in local places, including volunteers, third sector and local authority staff. You can register your place on Eventbrite where you’ll find further details about the webinar.
