A message to all schools wishing to participate in RE:CODE London

As you will be aware, the Government has announced the closure of schools and given clear guidance that the public should avoid events with large numbers of people and stop all non-essential social contact. 
In light of this, we have taken the decision to postpone RE:CODE London workshops scheduled for 28, 29, 30 April and 1 May. We will continue to take the latest advice from Public Health England (PHE) and encourage you to visit the NHS website for the latest information and guidance.

Stay tuned for updates on future dates. In the meantime:
