Street Association free Awareness raising Workshops
Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020
The Street Association is one of the community organisations that shares with Chiltern Community Forum the goal to encourage a stronger, more resilient community.
The Street Association works with local residents to help provide eyes and ears in the community, to hold Street Association information packs, and to share resources or signpost support to neighbours in need of some assistance. The infographic shows some of the excellent impacts they have achieved in the past couple of years.
As part of its work, The Street Association has developed a programme of free awareness raising workshops to help residents identify and react to some important issues. It is now inviting local organisations and groups to submit requests for training sessions from the remarkably diverse list below, or to make suggestions if there is a subject not covered.something missing.
Helen Cavill, Project Lead, is asking for responses by Monday 9th March. Please let her know what programmes are of interest, and your location. Once feedback has been received, a programme of events will be planned in different locations based on responses and demand. You can contact Helen on helencavillSA@hotmail.com.
