Connections with Purpose and Meaning
March 9| £125
This course, run by Community Circles, brings asset-based approaches alive in a practical way.
Covid has shown us just how vital people are to each other, alongside the chance to pursue things that give us purpose and meaning. During Covid many people have struggled to keep connected to friends and to important activities. At the same time this period has challenged us to consider whether some of the existing ways of offering support remain fit for purpose.
Are you supporting people who are looking for ways to keep involved with the things that matter to them, explore new opportunities and ways to connect? Are you a commissioner or development worker wanting to build such approaches?
Community Circles has been evolving and developing approaches both before and during the pandemic into many forms of “Circles” that enable people to connect and contribute in their communities. This work is part of a wider range of “asset-based approaches” starting to radically change both social and health care.
Following this course you can get started making a difference straight away. Course participants will learn how:
- a range of community and person-centred approaches delivered via various types of “Community Circle” can help support people to access connections with purpose and meaning to them and grow community opportunities to grow these connections
- to successfully develop and start to apply a range of effective approaches which don’t require major resources but which can increase your impact in building connections and opportunities
- a range of effective tools and approaches can be applied in practice, adding value to what you do including via use of communications technology
