Forever Manchester is hosting two FREE Connecting Communities Workshops in December for community groups and residents in Stretford and Moston & Harpurhey.
Forever Manchester’s Connecting Communities Workshops are for community groups and local residents to learn about some of the tools and techniques we have developed to help find untapped local skills and talents to benefit their work in the community.
The workshops are another way we are supporting groups with practical advice alongside our usual grants and awards.
We hope this will help groups and residents in the future and give them some handy tips!
Community groups and local residents in Stretford and Moston and Harpurhey have been invited to learn about tools Forever Manchester has learnt whilst implementing the Asset Based Community Development approach.
The workshops will include a variety of interactive and fun activities and discussions for you to engage in and enjoy.
We hope these activities will reveal hidden talents amongst the community for residents to connect with and utilise.
These workshops are also a chance for us to find out about all the great things that are going on in your community and a fantastic opportunity for us all to meet like-minded people.
Community groups and projects exist without our input, but we hope these workshops will connect them together to share skills.
Working in areas across Greater Manchester we have found that every community group and project has the same aim – to make their area better. This is a great networking opportunity for you to meet people just like you and collectively create a thriving community.
The first community workshop on Wednesday 3rd December at Stretford Public Hall was a huge success with many residents learning new things about their neighbours that they didn’t previously know. It also gave residents brilliant new tips on how to find skills and assets in their area.
One resident said their favourite bit about the workshops was “the inspirational ‘can do’ attitude” while another said they enjoyed “meeting with other local people involved in groups”.
If you’re a resident in the Moston and Harpurhey area, be sure to head down to Simpson Memorial Hall on Wednesday 9th December 6.30-8.30pm.
