How do our clients feel we manage being COVID secure? (Feedback from 16.01.2020)

Good COVID secure (wipes, manikin each, prompt to wear mask, sanitiser, ventilation) felt very safe.

Course layout was fab – all COVID considerations and measures in place were very reassuring – thank you!

I felt perfectly safe despite being in a current pandemic. Thoroughly risk assessed by course provider.

Personnel equipment provided with safe distancing etc

Good socially distancing.

Very pleased with COVID measures – felt very safe in this environment and could see there had been more than adequate risk assessments made prior to keep us safe – thanks!

Community Reporter 4 week course starting January 21

What does wellbeing mean to you? What stops you from being well? What keeps you healthy? What was your experience of the COVID-19 pandemic been?

Community Reporting is a storytelling movement that spans the UK and Europe. It supports people to share stories about their own lived experiences and also capture the experiences of their family, friends, work colleagues and neighbourhoods. Community Reporters are trained in how to use basic technology to record people’s stories and use the learnings in the stories to make positive changes in their communities.

 

If that sounds like something you’d like to do, contact:

Rachel.Swaby@calderdale.gov.uk / 01422 392 708

The training will be delivered in four two-hourly sessions, running over four weeks. You will be taught the knowledge and skills and in the last sessions, you will make your own short documentary.

Active Citizen’s Project 6 week workshop starting January 26th

 

 

Often when you’re involved in an emergency response either as a volunteer or a paid member of staff you don’t have time to sit back and reflect on the actions you have been taking or the wider context. All One Collective & Lab will be running 6 workshops for individuals who have taken their own community action during Covid-19, volunteers involved in mutual aid groups and local community organisations to reflect on their work and their involvement in the Covid-19 response.

The workshops will provide a space for participants to explore:

•    Health: What do we mean by health? Holistic understandings of health, right to healthcare, community responses to health and wellbeing.
•    Identity and values, our reasons for taking action, individual values and experiences, self-care tools, wellbeing and sustainability
•    You and me: what is community? Who is included and excluded? Prejudice and discrimination. Power, what does it mean and who holds it? How do we empower ourselves and others?
•    Taking Action: what has worked and what hasn’t? What have we learned? How do we have more impact? How can we be more effective? What does success look like?
•    Connecting with and learning from Covid responders in other countries who are part of the Active Citizens network.
•    Recovery: What does it look like? How do we build back better? Challenging inequality, building a low carbon economy.

The workshops will help participants to develop confidence and capacity to take further social actions both individually and collectively, and to learn from others involved in this work in Calderdale, nationally and from groups internationally.

The workshops will run on Zoom but with some offline activities integrated into the sessions.  Each workshop builds on the previous one so whilst we understand some participants might not be able to attend all six, we would encourage participants to attend as many as possible.

The sessions will run from 10am -1pm (with a break)

The dates of the workshops are:

•    26th Jan
•    2nd Feb
•    9th Feb
•    Week off for half-term)
•    23rd Feb
•    2nd March
•    9th March

The project is funded by the British Council.

If anyone interested would like to join but is worried about the digital aspect of the workshops, please do get in touch and we can talk about any further support you might need to help you participate.

For people interested in participating, please email: hilaryturley@all1collective.org.uk
