We are hosting training in Banchory for people who may wish to volunteer as Community Advocates with the organisation, or for those who wish to further their professional development.
The course will run over five days: 19th, 20th, 26th, 27th April and 3rd May from 9.30am to 3pm at Hill of Banchory School, and cover Basic Core Advocacy Skills such as “what is advocacy?”, communication skills, discrimination and stereotyping, conflict resolution, Basic Child Protection, and Adult Support and Protection. Lunch and refreshments will be provided on each day.
Working as a volunteer Community Advocate is always inspiring, rewarding, interesting and at times challenging. It is a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills, and put your existing talents and knowledge to good use. If this sounds like the sort of opportunity you would like to engage with, we would be delighted to hear from you!
Training is free for those who wish to become volunteers. A small charge applies to those who would like to access the course for continuing professional development purposes.
