ERSA Members have been sent joining links for the following Regional CPA Forums, please email us at with queries.

Following on from the Meet the Primes of the DWP’s CAEHRS Framework on Friday 23 October, a series of forums have been set up between 3 – 12 November for ERSA members. You won’t find these meetings on Eventbrite, instead the Microsoft Teams meeting links and an option to save to your own devices has been sent by email. If you haven’t received this, please let us know via

The Regional CPA Forums will provide a space for all ERSA members to come together, virtually of course, to connect and collaborate.

ERSA members have another opportunity to meet the organisations who have been awarded a place on the framework and an equal chance to introduce their own organisation and talk about local delivery. Full and associate members are welcome to attend and take part in these roundtables, a chance to work the virtual room and put faces to those EOIs and emails. It’s the closest we can get to meeting in person, shaking hands and swapping business cards. For everyone to have a chance to speak, we ask each person take no more than 3 minutes. 

Have your say
For the first of each meeting we aim to follow the format below, giving a voice to everyone that wants one, along with a chance to shape future agendas and frequency.
