Coronavirus Update

19 March, 12.00pm.  In order to protect the safety of our staff and the public more generally we have now closed the TRA office and all staff are working from home until further notice. We are well-equipped to work remotely so we hope that we will be able to continue without too much disruption. The majority of our training events have been postponed until after the summer but if you are in any doubt please get in touch.  

If you need to contact us please do so by email; either to your usual contact or to our general address -  Calls will not be forwarded so please do not telephone the office.
