The Welfare Handbook

The Welfare Handbook - http://www.thepurpleguide.co.uk/index.php/welfare-handbook 

A comprehensive new guide to Welfare at Events published alongside the Purple Guide by the Events Industry Forum.  The new guide, which has been written by welfare specialist Penny Mellor, draws on the experiences of a wide range of welfare organisations to provide a set of guidelines for providing welfare services at events, such as concerts and festivals.  It also contains guidance for event organisers about providing welfare services as well as downloadable forms that can be used by those providing these services (e.g. lost property etc.).  This is thought to be the first time that guidance on welfare services has been made available and it is hoped that it will lead to greater consistency in the approach to the provision of these essential services.
