After the Association's annual general meeting was concluded, talks were given by the following Fellows from the region:

  • Barbara Bloomfield, who travelled to Australia and Singapore last year to explore approaches to supporting adult couples affected by autism or Asperger's. Barbara will be travelling to the USA later this year for the second phase of her Fellowship.
  • Lorraine George, who travelled to the USA in 2017 to learn more about the provision of childcare and school reception classes based in residential care homes, known as intergenerational co-location. Read Lorraine's report
  • Andrew Ormerod, who has recently returned from travelling in Cameroon, Ethioia and Kenya exploring new approaches to plant selection and breeding. He will be travelling to Canada and the USA in September for the second part of his Fellowship.
  • Mark Bolt, who went to USA in 2013 to study the way in which their criminal justice system deals with suspects with mental health illnesses. Read Mark's report
  • Brian Sheen (pictured above centre, with paddle), who travelled to Australia in 1976 to study beach safefy techniques.
