Learning Programme 2022

Programme Overview

In 2022 Barnwood Trust is offering a range of workshops to help people across Gloucestershire to learn about how to make change in the county that benefits disabled people and people with mental health challenges.

Workshops are facilitated by a range of Barnwood Trust staff and external partners and cater for a wide range of learning styles and preferences.

We are committed to making sure that our workshops are accessible and want to hear from you if there are things that will help you to attend, or barriers that might prevent you from doing so.
