Community Facilitator Programme

For more than 20 years WRDA has offered the innovative Community Facilitators programme. This award winning programme provides an opportunity for local women to develop leadership and facilitation skills and complete a Level 3 Certificate in Training and Development. In 2016 we produced a booklet to celebrate this achievement and you can download a copy here.
