The National Association of Care Catering have announced that this year’s training and development forum has been cancelled.
In a statement released Statement by Sue Cawthray, National Chair, National Association of Care Catering (NACC) she said:“A few weeks ago, in line with Government guidance, we were delighted to announce that we would be able to run the annual NACC Training and Development Forum 2020 as a live event in October. However, since then, we have had to review this decision due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic situation around the country and the developing governmental restrictions and increasing number of regional lockdowns.
“After consulting with the East Midlands Conference Centre venue and a health and safety expert we have taken the very difficult, but sensible decision to postpone the NACC Training and Development Forum 2020 to 6-8 October 2021. Given the continuing uncertainty and the fact that many of our delegates work on the front line, this is the right decision for everyone involved, from our members and events team, to our delegates, speakers, presenters and exhibitors. We would like to thank them all for their support.
“The NACC Awards, which are part of the Training and Development Forum, are an important NACC event and highlight the dedication, innovation and excellence within care catering. Given the exceptional and selfless contribution that care caterers on the front line have made throughout the pandemic, it’s incredibly important that we recognise and honour our care catering heroes this year. We are therefore holding a virtual NACC Awards ceremony on Thursday 8th October 2020 and we look forward to coming together with colleagues and friends as a membership and sector to celebrate the winners, all the finalists and the care catering sector as a whole.”
