With the Covid19 restrictions preventing us from hosting our annual conference last year, we are delighted to announce the initial details of the 2021 W3RT CVS Annual Conference which will take place on Thursday 25th November 2021 between 12-2:30pm (lunch included). The conference will be held at the Holywell Community Centre in Watford and will allow us, as a sector, to celebrate, share and reflect on what we have delivered during the pandemic and as we start looking towards a post Covid future.
