There's a range of advice and support available if you want to run a community event.
Safety Advisory Group
The Safety Advisory Group (SAG) work in partnership with emergency services and professional bodies to discuss the health and safety issues around staging an event . The group offers professional guidance.
The group's objectives are:
• To promote high levels of safety and welfare at events by giving advice and guidance
• To promote good practice in safety and welfare planning for events
• To ensure events cause minimal adverse impact to the community
• Encourage cooperation and coordination between all relevant agencies so that events are safe and successful
If you intend to hold a large event (with more than 500 people attending) please send your event management plans or enquiries to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recommend that you make contact with the the Group well in advance of the event - at least six months, if possible.
