Catch up and share experiences with other people involved or interested in rural touring. Our team will be on hand to answer any questions. Our network meet-ups are FREE for members (Memberships starts from £20 per year). On occasion, they may be a more focused affair; a lab for up-skilling our members or a workshop on a particular theme. If you’re not a member yet and interested in coming along, get in touch.
Each month the Network Meet-Up will follow a rough agenda as follows.
Welcome and Member Catch up – This is your opportunity to share any relevant recent news or put out any calls outs to fellow members.
Member Lab – An Opportunity for you to reach out to the team for help finding something, someone or somewhere to assist your practice / work. We will signpost / connect / guide where we can!
Monthly Focus – We will guide a chat around a specific topic each month. Check our social media / webpage for what this month’s topic is!
We aim to make our events as accessible as possible and offer grants up to £50 to help with travel costs, caring responsibilities, loss of income or disability requirements. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to check eligibility.
