This is a Community based introduction to Community Development provided by the University of Glasgow in partnership with local agencies/organisations, which in this case will be Activ8ourplace. We are holding an information session on Monday 7th October 2019 at 10.00 a.m. in Branchton Community Centre for anyone who is interested in taking part. The course itself will kick off two weeks later. The course coordinator from the University of Glasgow will be present to talk about the course. 

The main aim is to give people who are active in their community an opportunity to reflect on what they do and why they do it. Participants get the opportunity to examine different practice approaches to working in the community, all of which will assist them in being even more effective in their practice. In addition to this, the programme contributes to the sustainability of organisations, networks and initiatives and leads to increased community participation.
