Annual Autumn Conference

Each year the Loddon Training & Consultancy – PROACT-SCIPr-UK® host an annual Autumn Conference. The aim of the conference is to disseminate good practice, celebrate positive practice and provide an opportunity for networking and talking to like-minded people. We focus on a specific theme pertinent to the national agenda and explore how this can be incorporated within the support provided.

There is always a variety of speakers ranging from academics, practitioners, individuals with Autism / Asperger’s syndrome and service-users themselves. All of whom take one aspect of the theme to provide their perspective or an alternative view, which may include practical suggestions for implementation or just tell us how it is.

Unfortunately we had to postpone our 2020 Conference due to COVID-19.   We can now confirm it will take place on Thursday 14th & Friday 15th October 2021 at The Hampshire Court Hotel.

Annual Awards Ceremony

This is also the event where we host our annual Awards Ceremony where we celebrate the excellent work our PROACT-SCIPr-UK® organisations are doing within their service whether its Instructors providing much needed training in our approach, organisations finding ingenious ways of implementing it, whole teams or frontline staff responsible for the support of individuals with complex needs and whose behaviour may be cause for concern.

The ceremony usually takes place at our conference dinner held on the evening of the first day.  This year, unfortunately due to having to postpone our conference we are unable to host the awards in the usual way.  However we remain committed to celebrating good practice. Indeed, we feel that more than ever it is important to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of those who have been working tirelessly to ensure that those we support receive the best care and education in these unprecedented times.
