It’s the Festival of Learning have a go month!

Posted on 2nd September 2020

Why not learn something new?

Festival of Learning is the biggest celebration of lifelong learning in England. Their aim is to celebrate the benefits of lifelong learning and inspire more people to have a go at learning for themselves.

Have a Go Month is when The Festival of Learning encourage organisations and learning providers to offer free learning activities for adults, such as taster sessions, online learning, talks or lectures, open days and more.

Because of COVID 19 many opportunities to learn and grow have been put on hold. Advocacy Matters is offering free on line training in Independent Advocacy. This is a golden opportunity to learn something new and maybe even start a new career? Independent Advocates support people who may be vulnerable due to disability or age to have a voice in the decisions about thier lives that matter to them. Would you like to support peoples rights and empower individuals to speak for themselves and be heard?
