Fun and Friendly Workshop to Help Design Support Services

Would you like to try something new that you can shape and design?  Community Catalysts are facilitating a workshop on Wednesday 28th November 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. for direct payment recipients in Warwickshire to help design support services that you can pay for with your direct payment.  You'll meet non-profit community based organisations who want to hear your ideas on what activities they should be running for you and others in the community.  There will be representatives from organisations in Atherstone, Dordon, Kingsbury and Nuneaton.  Your opinion matters and can really make a difference to what services are available in Warwickshire.  The initiative is being facilitated by Community Catalysts and is supported by Warwickshire County Council.  

There are limited places, so please book your place as soon as possible!

The venue is in Kingsbury and will be confirmed on booking.  Please phone or text 07880 388478 or email rachel.knight@communitycatalysts.co.uk to book your place or for more information.
