Community Engagement Conference: 6th January

6 - 9pm, Friday 6 January
Empress State Building, Empress Approach, Lillie Road, Earls Court, London SW6 1TR

What's this about?
Last year we undertook to convene an engagement meeting after the trial of Stephen Port had concluded. We cordially invite you to this extended event. Not only will you be able to voice your questions and concerns about the Port case, but you will also be briefed on an array of learning and development activities that are particularly relevant. This includes the review of GBL-related deaths, the review of unexpected death procedures, and the chemsex training and guidance programme.
As you can see from the programme below, more than 50% of the time is allocated to enabling community members to have their say. That's why the programme runs from 6-9pm including refreshments to sustain you! We recognise that Friday night may be an unusual day for the event, but until the replacement to New Scotland Yard opens in the Spring, the main conference suite at Empress State Building is heavily over subscribed.
Please pass this invitation on all the contacts in your own networks.

Please register online using our online form (preferred method). Alternatively, register by email to with your name, contact email, dietary and access requirements. For further enquiries, please call 020 3524 0562.
