Letterbox contact
One-day conference plus workshops

A constructive way forward. Often viewed as the ‘least detrimental’ way forward letterbox contact is complex. Can it meet the needs of all parties? What are the long-term implications? These issues will be explored by a range of speakers with workshop opportunities to explore the dilemmas raised over time.
