Welcome to PPMA North West.

We have run a number of events over the last few months in collaboration with partners and we hope to arrange further workshops in the near future. We also work in close collaboration with North West Employers. We are open to all suggestions for getting PPMA members together in the Region. If you have any ideas for future events, please get in touch.

North West Regions Event

The PPMA national programme event for the North-West region took place on the 17th of March. This was one of a number of regional events being organised by the Policy Board as a follow-up to the 2015 Annual Seminar held in Bristol, with the theme of “Past, Present and Future”. A number of sponsors presented at the event helping to promote inclusion for those who were not able to attend the seminar, and to increase exposure and interaction between PPMA members and sponsors.
