Join a Learning Circle for Community Building Practitioners

What is the Learning Circle for Community Building Practitioners?

The Learning Circle brings together people who are directly working in communities, supporting residents to build connections between neighbours and encouraging community led ideas to emerge.

Participants are encouraged to share their understanding, experiences of enabling community led action, as well as exploring challenges.  Each session is supported by an experienced facilitator, who will host specific topics and introduce practical tools and techniques to support your practice and development.

Circle members are invited to commit to meeting five sessions over the year.

Learning Circle

The programme seeks to offer community development practitioners a more structured approach to learning, whilst creating flexibility to discuss practical issues that relate to the theme of the session. It seeks to build a network of practitioners, so people can turn to each other for support and guidance. The sessions seek to create the environment where practitioners feel safe and a culture of trust can be created ensuring people can be authentic with each other.
