It’s that time of year when AGMs and Annual Reports are coming in thick and fast! I am always grateful to be invited to the AGMs of FRSA Members and get to hear firsthand a review of all the fabulous work that’s happened though the year. I can’t make it to every AGM but having the opportunity to read through the Annual Reports of Member organisations is a good second option. It is so important to take the time to reflect on all that has been achieved and to be reminded that at the heart of those achievements are the children, adults and families our Members work with day in and day out. FRSA’s AGM will be held virtually for the first time on 29 November. Members can register here.
Speaking of things coming in thick and fast, the call for abstracts for the FRSA 2024 Conference closes COB this coming Monday 13 November. It’s exciting seeing the abstract numbers coming through each day and so far, there is a good spread across all conference streams. We have our abstract review panel lined up and ready to go. If you’ve been wavering about whether to submit an abstract, we encourage you to bite the bullet and take these last few days to get one in. You can find out more about the abstract process and submit your abstract here.
Children’s Week was on 21 October – 29 October 2023. Children’s Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities. As always, FRSA Members celebrated the week with great enthusiasm and joy. We’ve captured some of their activities below.
