We have some great training opportunities lined up for this term!

  1. As part of a nationwide project by The Skills Network to raise Mental Health Awareness within communities throughout the UK we're able to offer any of the KEEN team a free online qualification in Awareness of Mental Health Problems. This is funded by the government and is the equivalent level of qualification as a GCSE at A*-C grades.

  2. Beginners Makaton Training 

    6:30 - 8:30pm Thursday 24th October

    Makaton sign language is designed to provide a means of communication to individuals who cannot communicate efficiently by speaking. Some of our participants use makaton so it'll be great to improve our skills.
