Project: Peer led skills development course for disabled women
The project will give participants opportunities to
- develop facilitation, presentation and research skills
- gain and share knowledge in an area of interest
- put this knowledge into practice
- meet and work with new people
The project will be split into two parts. The first part will consist of three sessions aimed at building facilitation skills and confidence for the participants. We will then go on to design a number of further sessions tailored specifically to the needs of individuals within the group. Each will have a mentor who will support in gaining skills in the area of work interested. This could include building campaigns, arts and self-expression, challenging interpersonal violence â€“ the possibilities are endless!
The facilitators for these sessions are:
