Free ‘Heads On Hands On’ 3 day cross-border awareness course.
Donegal County Council and Derry City Council Community Relations are pleased to be working in partnership to offer local community and voluntary groups a free awareness opportunity. Many groups in both council areas are keen to make cross-border connections – which can also be helpful for Peace funding or other funding opportunities.
The ‘Heads On – Hands On’ 3 day awareness course is designed for groups who wish to make cross-border contacts and build on their awareness of Good Relations. The ‘Heads On’ day is focused on basic training around introduction to Good Relations and will be facilitated by the Peace and Reconciliation Group (PRG). This is followed by 2 ‘Hands On’ days which are field trip visits in Derry~Londonderry and Donegal to see local groups with relevance to Good Relations. Participants should be able to attend all 3 days.
