Hear from others who’ve attended their training already:

“I’ve never found anything so informative, educational and useful. The trainers were supportive, clear and interesting and gave me confidence to try new things and explore possibilities to use different tools.”

“It was at my level and built from the quite limited knowledge I have. I was not made to feel in any way stupid for having limited knowledge and skills, as has sometimes happened elsewhere, and that made it possible to relax and so learn.”

Course dates

These courses are running from September 2023 to February 2024, and you can find a full list on their website.

This training is for small charities and community groups directly supporting and working with people in London.
