Events guidance documents

APRIL 2021 UPDATE - We've now released our tentative 'roadmap' for restarting group face-to-face activities in a staggered way.

Click here for all the latest information and what you'll need to do..

Until further notice, the new information in the link above replaces the information below.

Lower risk events are covered by our new, simplified events guidance documents.

Events guidance reduces the time you need to spend on risk management, whilst ensuring you can provide a safe environment for members and visitors to take part in different kinds of activities. It removes your responsibility for managing emergencies such as fire and first aid incidents.

Use the same guidance document to record all events of the same type.
