We’re delighted to announce we’ve been contracted by the New Communities Partnership (NCP) to deliver a capacity-building and training programme for regional representatives of the Partnership over the coming months. Our work will focus on equipping local members of the NCP with media and political advocacy skills, with a view to strengthening the voice of new communities at all levels of Irish life.
We’re also currently working with the Family Resource Centre National Forum (FRCNF) and the Family Support Agency (FSA) on the launch of a statistical report on the organisations’ work during 2009. This launch will take place in Dublin next Wednesday, 7th July, and will be followed by a political briefing event where representatives of Family Resource Centres from all over Ireland will meet their local TDs and Senators to fill them in on the statistical information of relevance to their area.
Finally, we’re in the process of putting together our training programme for autumn 2010: during September and October, DHR Communications will be offering great value training sessions in media skills and political advocacy, specifically focused at the not-for-profit and statutory sectors. Full details of our training programme will be announced over the coming weeks, so check back often for further updates or email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more!
