FREE Active Citizenship and Community Organising TrainingPosted on 09-10-2017 by Maria Hughes
The Ageing Better LGBT Hub is offering this one-day FREE training course for members of the community who are interested in setting up community activities, and those who are already organisers who are looking to develop their skills.
Active citizenship is about taking steps or taking on a role within your community which improves the lot not just of yourself but of others within that community. Community organising develops the capacity of people with shared interests and goals, to use their passion and energy effectively and collectively to create positive change.
With this training, we hope to encourage community organisers to become part of Ageing Better programme and organise activities with support from the LGBT Hub.
As this training is funded by Ageing Better in Birmingham LGBT Hub, priority will be given to people from the LGBT community who live, work, socialise or organise in Birmingham, or have other connections to Birmingham. People from nearby areas (e.g. Black Country, Solihull) are also welcome to enquire.
The training takes places on Saturday 11th November, between 9.30am – 4.00pm at Birmingham LGBT Centre. More information available here.
