Within the network there is a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience available from members, all of whom are actively involved in meeting the day-to-day challenges of running a setting.

Shared Experiences in Private Discussion Forums – the forums allow all members to raise a topic for discussion. Once raised members can discuss and debate a topic. Questions can also be answered through the forum and links made where relevant to Frequently Asked Questions and Resources. The forums will be moderated by other practitioners to ensure they remain courteous and respectful.

Reducing the Costs of Running a Setting – as a membership network we want to ensure our members are getting value for money and keeping their day-to-day costs manageable.
