Spotlight on: Self Reliant Groups

What if the groups you work with weren’t dependant on funding? What if the groups you work with weren’t dependant on you? What if there was a different way of being alongside groups who set their own goals and achieved them?

Kirsty Slater and her colleague Isobel MacNaughton from WEvolution will berunning two sessions on SRG’s (Self Reliant Groups). These taster sessions (2hrs)  will provide participants with an understanding of the SRG way of working so that you can consider the model within your own context and reveal your groups’ potential to be self-reliant.

If you or your staff work with groups, and you’d like to explore a different way of working, this fun, interactive session is for you!

These sessions prelude a more intensive two day course that WEvolution would like to offer in Dundee. It’s a great opportunity to learn a bit more about being alongside people in an SRG, how it can change the way we work across our community and how we support and challenge people to be resourceful and creative.

Session 1: Wednesday 21st February  from 10am to 12pm

Session 2: Wednesday 21st February  from 2pm to 4pm

Both sessions will run at Number Ten, 10 Constitution Road, Dundee, DD1 1LL
