‘Summer Time Out’ is in its third week and tickets are available for a range of free, bitesized sessions open to everyone working for/with community, charity, voluntary, and social enterprise organisations in Leeds.

Summer Time Out is a month-long festival of learning from Forum Central partners, Volition and Leeds Older People’s Forum. Throughout August, we’re bringing together expert-led sessions and opportunities for peer learning from organisations across the city. Designed with and for our membership, third sector organisations working in health and care, ‘Summer Time Out’ is for you. The festival is devoted to increasing your workplace well-being, creating a healthy, happy and inclusive workplace, and supporting your colleagues and your team.

You can find all the details in this programme, and sign up to all sessions on Eventbrite using this link. Spaces are limited so please only book if you are certain that you can attend. Come along, be stimulated and develop your skills. We look forward to seeing you.
