Voluntary, community and faith groups in Newham have the chance to sign up to this free programme to help your organisation develop its support for the local community during the Covid pandemic.
We all have something to offer, we all have something to learn.
Learning Together is a flexible programme of regional learning and development activities for voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise groups and organisations supporting their communities’ needs through COVID-19. Join Learning Together to maximise and enhance the support you can offer your communities.
What’s on offer?
Those joining Learning Together will be offered a learning package tailored to their areas’ needs. Accessed over 2 hours a month, participants will be able to take part in a series of online modules on themes developed from conversations with groups and social prescribing co-ordinators followed by surgeries where an organisation can explore their individual practice with other organisations or project organisers. The programme will be coordinated by Tower Hamlets CVS and Compost London.
You will also be connected with a regional Thriving Communities lead, who will help you connect with other groups and organisations to stimulate new partnerships with arts, heritage, natural environment, financial wellbeing, physical activity and health and care organisations, including social prescribing link workers. These opportunities are only available through Learning Together.
What skills will I develop?
During Learning Together, you will have opportunities to:
· build new partnerships across sectors, including arts, financial wellbeing, natural environment, leisure, physical activity and sport, health and care
· network with others from your area
· share and explore challenges of your work with other community leaders, learn from others and consider possible solutions
· champion your work in supporting communities through COVID-19
What to expect
Learning Together is free to join. Recognising that partnerships and networks take time develop and the organisations have competing demands Learning Together runs for 3 months via a virtual platform. We would encourage you to join the full programme of events to get the most out of it for you and your organisation; with a commitment of at least 2 hours each month.
The first module runs from 12th May 2021and the programme will run till mid July.
