ECHO sessions for care homes in South East London and Croydon

We can provide support to set up and implement ECHO, a community of learning linking several care homes across our boroughs.

ECHO is delivered on Zoom and each community will get emailed in advance with the topic and speaker for that session and how to join. If you have any queries or are not receiving reminders please email

Please put the dates below for your community in your diary so as many of your team as possible can attend on the day.
