Together Conference 2018!


We can't wait for you to join us! This year we'll be gathering at the beautiful Belton Woods Hotel in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside. 

The summer holidays will be over, but there is no better way to ease our way back into the term than by spending two fun days away together at the start of September. Set in 475 acres of beautiful and tranquil countryside, Belton Woods Hotel has a host of luxury facilities you can enjoy. So whether you want to show off the swimming skills you honed on your holiday in Tenerife, or feel like sweating out any 'new term nerves' in the sauna, we hope you enjoy making the most of your time here.

TLG's Together Conference is an opportunity for us to say a HUGE thank you to you for the amazing part you are playing in changing the lives of children, young people and families. So have a great catch up, enjoy the fun activities, celebrate at our annual Staff Awards dinner and feel equipped and encouraged with our planned sessions during our time together.

Please note, this is a compulsary staff event. If you cannot attend, please get approval from your line manager and let us know as soon as possible.


We can't wait for you to join us!
