We are offering NSUN members free places on a facilitation training course by Act Build Change.

ABC will deliver a 2.5 hour session to NSUN member groups on facilitating through conflict, difference and tension. This session will support participants to caringly facilitate spaces where there are disagreements, differences and/or tension, this will include considering the care of facilitators. The session will also support participants to strengthen practice in decision making in rooms in such contexts. It will build on existing knowledge in the room and create space for participants to learn from each others’ experiences and practice. The session will involve a combination of teaching, reflective space and group conversation.
