Seminars and Workshops

London Advocacy is committed to support training and lifelong learning for its service users, volunteers and employees, recognising that during the COVID-19 pandemic, vulnerable communities must be the priority.

There are a series of seminars and workshops organised by the London Advocacy and by its partner organizations. Our aim is to help people quickly adopt UK life and mitigate effect of the pandemic.

Guidance for Businesses and Employers Considering the Needs of People during COVID-19 

As businesses continue to operate and/or reopen during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are many questions about how businesses can safely operate. In this new way of conducting business, a key concern is how to also meet the needs of employees that may be at higher risk as well as customers with disabilities.  

LA Covid19 Response: Briefing on COVID-19 Webinars 

COVID-19 has placed enormous health and economic stress on our community organizations and the people they serve. For that reason, LA and its partner organization has committed to host a regular set of community updates via a Zoom webinar as a response to COVID-19. We welcome updates from any community leader—from government agencies and elected offices, businesses, and nonprofits—that can directly help our nonprofit partners since April 2020. 

In these calls, we hope to generate greater awareness of what the responses are looking like and to build stronger networks of actors for the coming weeks. We know that collaboration and partnerships are going to be the bedrock for managing crisis 

These calls are facilitated on a recurring basis; same week day and time. Please email our project manager at [email protected] with any questions or comments. Zoom information will be provided by an automatic digital link email.

Succeeding Post COVID-19 Seminars started January 2021 

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way we work. With the announcement of vaccines, we hope that things will return to normal soon. With the Government predicting that the roll out of vaccines may take up to 12 months to complete, will business and communities ever be the same?
