Capacity Building

Community Learning & Development plays a vital role in supporting and encouraging people, either individually or in groups to develop projects which will be of benefit to the whole community.  The Community Learning & Development Service provides assistance to voluntary groups and enables volunteers to learn new skills and develop in confidence.  The service also aims to encourage individuals and groups to participate in determining the conditions which affect their lives.
