We hope that you and your families are well and staying safe during these quite unprecedented and difficult times due to the COVID-19 pandemic which is generating so much disruption, anxiety and concern.

The Trustees are mindful of the difficulties being experienced and are reviewing how our various services and educational activities are maintained for your benefit taking into account the current advice and obligations set out by Government, professional and regulatory bodies, and Public Health authorities.

The decision to cancel the June National Course has been taken; as circumstances and guidance change further information regarding the Annual General Meeting and the Symposium will be posted.

However, SAAD’s Office continues to function as normal; enquiries regarding how the various SAAD Assessed Schemes have been affected may be made by contacting Fiona, Executive Secretary, either by email or by telephone 01302 846 149.

SAAD continues to hold your interests uppermost and thanks you for your continued understanding and support.
