"LARAC was incredibly useful to learn lots of the latest information and a chance to be away from the office to reflect on ways to improve the service. A valued opportunity when times in the office can be somewhat busy. It was also a great opportunity to network with people from other services to learn their best practices and with the suppliers/agencies to learn what's available." - 2016 attendee
