We are sorry but due to the impact and the pressures presented by COVID-19 (coronavirus) and because we want to protect all our health and safety, we have made some important decisions about TALK Derby. All face-to-face activity (including training, events, meetings) have been paused - this is until further notice. We will continue with all online webinars and e-learning activity, and will do what we can to offer you choices during this period should you still want to get involved. We also aim to still be available on the ‘phone and email – so do get in touch if you need us. Thank you and stay safe.
