Free skills, workshops and activities

 

Learn Create Innovate

We're running a new learning programme for our tenants and resident leaseholders, called Learn Create Innovate.

The programme includes a series of free skills workshops and activities, and aims to support tenants and resident leaseholders to get the most from Housing and other council services, and from their groups and associations.

It has been set up by the Resident Involvement Team, in partnership with the resident-led Involvement & Empowerment Service Improvement Group, following recommendations from tenants.

What's on offer:

  • How to make the most of using Facebook for your groups? If you are a registered residents association or community group with the Resource Centre, you can contact them to book yourself a space on this workshop.  The first workshop is being held on 4 June at 145pm and the second workshop is on 23 July at 545pm. Call Rosie at the Resource Centre on 01273 606160 for further information.
