Introduction to Community Action: course flyer
Fancy trying something new?

Hi Roger,

September is a time for fresh starts, new challenges, and a chance to try something different. If you’re looking for some inspiration we’ve got a couple of ideas here for you, from healthy recipes to sowing a wildflower wonderland.

We’re also excited to share that applications for our Introduction to Community Action course are now open.

Part of our Community Camp programme, this short course is jam-packed with workshops, inspirational talks, networking and fun, and it’s for anyone interested in making a difference in their community, no matter how small.

Think it might be for you? Join our short session with Tracey Robbins, Head of UK Delivery on 26 September at 7pm, to find out more and get your questions answered. Places are fully funded, but in high demand, so get your application in by 27 October!
