Bridges out of Poverty 8th & 9th February 2017
Strategies for Communities and Professionals

The 2Day Course will provide profound insights and answers to community professionals, agency workers and allied health practitioners serving clients challenged by financial and social disadvantage.

It will explore the notion of hidden rules that dictate how each of us operate within different social classes and contexts, and the impact that our language base, resource set and family structure have on how we – usually unconsciously – view and interact with the world.

The “Bridges out of Poverty” workshop will provide participants with the knowledge, understanding and tools to tackle sensitive issues in respectful and constructive ways. It offers solutions that are practical and strategic, addressing everyday interactions through to policy implications in every sector, from justice, health and housing, education and employment, through to transport and training.
