We have recently developed a training program as part of Community Works

This training program is based on our extensive experience and we we have worked to develop a range of courses for a wide variety of people who work with communities e.g. those in local authorities, housing associations, health and the voluntary sector. These were initially developed with the Community Development Foundation and are now being delivered by Community Works Training

We will be running the following courses:
