CONNECT participants have loved this year’s peer mentoring groups! So we are squeezing in a shorter, express version to support you to end 2020 more inspired than exhausted: Join us for FREE Connect Express, run in three 90 minute sessions.

CONNECT brings together small groups of 5-6 people who meet online to explore and deepen their CLD practice.  Sessions are hosted by an Inspiring Communities facilitator and provide a great way to:

• reflect on what’s happening in communities across your region

• get feedback on new ideas you’re keen to try or around tough stuff you’re facing

• build your CLD support network
