Places on our courses are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

How are places allocated?

Place will be allocated on a first come first served basis and a maximum of two places per organisation can be booked (unless otherwise stated).

What is the cost?

Places on our courses are FREE to network members. When completing the booking form please remember to state your training number (available from your Network Champion). A £50.00 charge will be made for non attendance or cancellation without 48 hours notice.

Whilst CAN training events will remain free for delegates to attend, we are a charity and it costs £1,200 per day for us to put on a course.  Donations towards attendance and refreshments will be welcome – our suggested donation amount is £20 to £25 but this is not mandatory. Any income will go back into the training budget to provide more courses.  Cheques made payable to Cumbria Advice Network. A donation box will be available on the day.
