Want workshop date annoucements  straight to your inbox?
Do I have to attend the Introduction before the Learning Together Workshop?
No.  We'd love you to join us at both but we understand that might not be possible for everyone.  We've designed them so that you can choose whatever date, time and location works best for you
Are the workshops a 'drop in' style event?
No and booking is required.  Although the workshops are informal, welcoming and no-pressure, we've designed them to make the most of the time available - so you'll get the most benefit if you can participate in the whole thing.   If you have other commitments, we understand  - just let us know when you book

For an even more informal way to learn more about the Feeling Connected Project and network with other people who are active in communities across Chesterfield and NE Derbyshire, come along to one of our Feeling Connected Social Events Find out more

Learning Together Workshops

 
These workshops offer a flexible format, focussed on shared learning and collective problem solving.

Bring your real-life volunteer organiser questions, dilemmas, challenges, ideas and experience - sharing and learning together makes it easier to make a difference, no matter what stage you're at.

 
Volunteer Organisers (including those with an idea) can participate in as many Learning Together Workshops as needed, to build confidence and connections and work through your specific questions and challenges with others who are, or have been, where you are.
 
Those who can support volunteer organisers with information, encouragement and connections are also welcome to attend and we value your contribution
