Self-Advocacy Training Skills Programme
Self-advocacy skills training can assist in knowing and accessing your rights and getting your voice heard in many situations.
Workshops continue: Wednesday mornings from 11am, Thursday afternoons from 2pm atCoolTan Arts unless otherwise advertised.
A thank you to those people who attended the re-arranged Recovery Star introduction and training (Recovery Star offered at CoolTan is primarily for people involved already with CoolTan Arts - pleasecontact us for details); and the Focus Group on behalf of UK Government departments’ consultation for theUnited Nations - reviewing 5 articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled People. It’s been good tomake firm links with other people, including the National Centre for Independent Living, and be able to put forward views directly from taking opportunities created from the Self-advocacy workshops.
Several new people have been in contact to be involved as mentors/tutors, trainers, courseadministration and peer support facilitators, and this revived initiative will get underway as soon as practicable.
Programmes and associated timetables will be available and distributed
There will be an opening of Programme 2 and 3 Self-advocacy Skills Training in the early Spring, with"An Introduction to Advocacy" beforehand, and a settled programme issued taking us through to theend of Summer.
