Talk Action recently completed a series of workshops training local unemployed residents in events management, culminating in 5 fantastic community events in Islington. The main focus of the project was to improve the lives of the most vulnerable ‘hard-to-reach’ community members by increasing their confidence, providing them with new skills, and inspiring them to create positive change within their communities.
The project is in partnership with St.Luke’s Community Centre with funding from the Big Lottery.
"The Course is wonderful!"
"Very satisfying, rewarding and a great sense of achievement."
