At the request of member groups, County Wicklow Public Participation Network is organising a Free training fair to support community & voluntary groups to do their work.
Workshops will run throughout the day on topics including: Charities Regulation, How to Manage Your Volunteers, Social & Digital Media, GDPR, Safeguarding Children in Sport, Planning for Success, Governance Code, Garda Vetting and more.
Along with the workshops there will be information stands from organisations that support and fund community groups including: BHP Insurance, JLT Insurance, Community Finance Ireland, Clann Cedo, KWETB, Co Wicklow Volunteer Centre, County Wicklow Partnership, Bray Area Partnership, Co Wicklow Local Sports Partnership, Wicklow County Council, Wicklow County Childcare Committee, Wicklow Children & Young People’s Services Committee and much more.
Our wonderful community cafés will be on hand to share their experiences of setting up these great initiatives while also providing refreshments.
Helen Howes, Resource Worker with Co Wicklow PPN said “This is going to be a great opportunity for community groups to get 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 free!”
