Listening Roadshow

We are running a training day for anyone wanting to learn how to deliver our Listening Roadshow Workshops. The training will take you through a workshop so that you experience it and will be followed with training on how to deliver the workshop to other community groups you work with. It will include how to collect the information, experiences, thoughts and opinions from the exercises you run and how to deliver the exercises effectively. The workshops have the aim to provide a space for listening to our neighbours and learning about peoples perspectives in light of the current political climate.

Launched in 2014, LegBank is conducting trials in Colombia, thanks to Merel’s previous experience of living and working there, where she learnt about the problems that amputees face in accessing prosthetics.
