All our courses have been developed to be as accessible,
engaging and participatory as possible.
We invite a variety of speakers, many of whom have graduated from
our courses and share their stories on how they have used the
skills they have learnt to make life better for their family and
supported others to do the same.
All of the courses cover a range of topics including person
centred planning, housing, communication, personal budgets and also
the latest information on legislation. We teach people how policies
are made at local and national level and encourage people to plan
solutions rather than share problems.
How has Partners in Policymaking made a
Graduates from all of Partners in Policymaking courses become
part of a strong local, regional and national network. This network
consists of people who have the skills and confidence they need to
help each other plan for the future in a positive way.
Many graduates have gone on to get jobs, are using a direct
payment or a personal budget and have helped to bring about change
by getting involved in local politics, formed support groups and
most importantly have used their skills to make a difference in
their own families.
We firmly believe that working together is much more powerful
than trying to do things by yourself.
