FREE online Zoom session Thursday 25th June 13:00 — 14:30

This zoom session will help you to decide if your idea for a community project will be eligible for funding from the People’s Health Trust and will help you to complete the short first stage application. Participants will be guided through the criteria and application form and be able to ask questions.

People’s Health Trust’s Active Communities funding programme is providing grants of £5,000 - £40,000 over up to 2 years for supporting people to create or shape local projects to make their community/neighbourhood an even better place to live. The funding is for projects in specific areas of Leeds where health inequalities are highest. The trust is looking for small and local projects, genuinely designed and run by local people. So you could be a small group of people on an estate, in a few streets or villages or a community of interest - where a group of people come together who have a shared issue they want to address, this could be neighbourhood based or wider.

Previously funded ideas: a group for local older and younger people to get together to do activities (e.g. craft, technology, history); a group for adults to learn English and enterprise skills connected to sewing; a local magazine written by and for the benefit of disabled people; a community café created and run by single parents as a space to meet, a tenants action group for people living on an estate.

The short on-line first stage application form must be completed by 1pm on 1st July. It would be really helpful if you visit the Trust’s website and read the guidance: https://www.peopleshealthtrust.org.uk/apply-for-funding and have an idea of the project you might want funding for.

Delivered by Kaye Wilson, Project Worker (funding and support to small groups)

Intelligence indicates that further terrorist attacks in our country are ‘highly likely’. Experience tells us that the threat comes not just from foreign nationals, but from terrorists born and bred in Britain. It is therefore vital that our counter-terrorism strategy contains a plan to prevent radicalisation and stop would-be terrorists from committing mass murder. The Prevent strategy, published by the Government is part of the overall counter-terrorism strategy.


This course starts with an overview of the Government’s Prevent strategy, and then looks at some of the reasons people become extremists. It goes on to cover the objectives of the Prevent strategy, how to base your actions on a risk based approach, what to do if you are concerned and much more.

This means getting to know the person and then tailoring their care as much as possible to meet their specific needs. Person centred care is now a key principle outlined in current legislation and it plays an important part in the standards that they set out which must be followed by all care professionals working in this country.

Professionals will form many different relationships in their work. Some will be formal and others more informal. Whoever you are communicating with and whatever the method you use it is essential that you make sure your communication is appropriate and effective.

Online training course- in this course we're going to be discussing two topics, 'equality' and diversity' and how they relate to one another. Understanding this will help us to identify and address issues of unfairness and discrimination in the workplace.

Duration: 70 mins (2 CPD Units)

Course Description

We’ve all heard and used the words ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’ before but what do they actually mean and how do they affect you as an employer or employee?

Well if you take the words on their own they are actually quite different, equality is the state of being equal, especially in rights and opportunities. Diversity is the state of being different or varied. However these 2 things should not be seen as opposite to each other, after all people can be different but they still have the same rights. When it comes to places of work there is legislation in place to ensure that we all meet our responsibilities in relation to equality and diversity… And one way to make sure we meet these responsibilities is through training.

This means you have to employ a reasonable level of care, to ensure they are kept safe from harm, abuse and injury.

Description

This training is designed for people who would like to learn the basic skills of public speaking and learn practical tips on how to be a better public speaker.

During this day-long course, we explore the nature of public speaking and how to identify what type of public speaker everyone is. We cover a practical session in how to manage nerves and the keys to essential preparation to make any speech a success.

Participants will not be forced to speak in front of the group, rather we will be focusing on developing confidence. The group will then learn how humans behave as tribes and how
we can use that tribal nature to change attitudes and opinions.
