This year's chosen charity


Every year the GA donates a portion of the Annual Conference and Exhibition delegate fees to a charitable organisation chosen by the current GA President. This year we will contribute £1 per paying delegate to Barnado’s.

Barnardo's is the UK’s leading children’s charity, addressing today’s pressing social issues in local communities. A key focus is our work with young carers, who take on adult responsibilities looking after a sick parent. They spend their days cooking, cleaning, shopping, paying the bills and providing medical/emotional support – they don’t have time for a childhood. Barnardo’s runs fifteen services across the UK where young carers can share their experiences and take comfort from knowing that they aren’t alone.


A limited number of rooms are available at the Holiday Inn through Conference Search with rates starting from £90.

Alternatively, accommodation can be secured independently at the Premier Inn and Travelodge where rates start from £27.

A coach service will operate between these hotels and the University during Conference.

You can also find your own accommodation on the Visit Surrey website.

Advance booking for social events

In addition to the main Conference programme, a number of social events will take place on the Monday and Tuesday evenings which need to be booked in advance. This year's events include the annual Conference Dinner, a Brewery Tour and Pizza Making. Further information is available on the Events page.
