The forum operates on a quarterly cycle of:

  • All-stakeholder events, consisting of a keynote presentation, followed by small group breakout discussions.

  • Morning coffee/afternoon tea discussions relevant to this agenda.
  • Training opportunities.
  • Newsletters, signposting relevant updates, content and events.
Forthcoming PAF events are shown opposite, along with the most recent relevant content.
