Covid-19 announcement


We continue to follow the emerging guidance on the Covid-19 virus to play our part in safeguarding public health. All decisions about SGA activities are being taken in line with government and public health advice in order to fulfill our responsibilities for the well-being of the SGA community, our staff and our partners. 

We have transferred all of our 2020 events calendar to a virtual environment and are now implementing this. We will keep everyone who has registered up to date through our emails and newsletters. 

We are working hard to build up the resources for the SGA community to access and will continue to add these to this site as they are completed.
