Booking Form: Co Wicklow Public Participation Network Training Fair 2019
Training Fair : Managing and Funding your Community Group

Saturday 21st September in the Brockagh Resource Centre, Laragh, Co Wicklow.

This Training Fair will provide a great opportunity for community groups to access information and learn new skills all in one day and under the one roof. It will also be a great networking opportunity for groups to share experiences and learn from each other, and its all free!

At the request of member groups, Co. Wicklow PPN is organising a Free Training Fair to support community & voluntary groups to do their work. Workshops will run throughout the day on topics which will support you in the management and funding of your Community Group.

Along with these workshops we will be showcasing the extensive projects undertaken by one of our member groups from the area and we will also have an Expo with stalls full of information from organisations working with the community & voluntary sector.

So remember to arrive early for your workshop and have time to visit the expo and network with other groups.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided for attendees.

Where bookings for a workshop exceed the places available priority will be given to Co. Wicklow PPN member groups.

We look forward to meeting you on the day.
