It looks like it is only a matter of time before an exciting new ‘Confidence and Assertiveness’ course gets started in Worksop. The course will take place at Framework’s Potter Street Project, and although residents will be encouraged to attend, any spare places will be available for anyone local who thinks they too could benefit from this kind of course.
The tutor will be Alan Turner, who has lots of experience teaching confidence building and assertiveness courses in all sorts of places, and what’s great about this particular course is that Alan is keen to respond to the needs of the people who attend. So, while he has a course planned it will be flexible enough to allow for those participating to have a real input on the direction the course eventually takes.
It is hoped that this course will start in either late June or early July, so if you’re interested in finding out more, please call Lindsey on 07919 528 109.

Progress so far...
Back in April I reported on a Gardening taster that took place at Elizabeth House, a hostel run by Framework providing support for the homeless. Well, after the success of the taster event we did manage to get a course off the ground and as you can see from the picture, some big changes are already beginning to happen. To see all the pics just click to the right where it says ‘more photos’. Good work everyone!

…quite literally! What currently looks like a fairly dull garden space could soon be transformed into an oasis of colour after a gardening taster took place at Elizabeth House last week.
Elizabeth House, run by Framework Housing, provides some much needed support and accommodation for the homeless. Julie, the Support Worker, provided the biscuits and marshmallows, while Karen, the tutor, brought along her expertise and lots of ideas to get the group thinking about how the space could be developed. So, hopefully a follow-on course will run very soon with regular updates to follow.
