Glasgow capacity building training for NGOs

09 February 2012

..... ...........

Runnymede is pleased to offer UK NGOs the opportunity to attend a free training day focusing on the key themes of advocacy, the media and monitoring. Following the success of our London seminar, we have now confirmed the date for the Glasgow seminar: Thursday 9 February.

These awareness raising seminars, in the areas of non discrimination and equality targeted at civil society organisations, are part of an EU funded project which covers thirty-two European Countries.  The aim is to strengthen the capacity of NGOs in their work on non-discrimination and equality.  The seminars have been designed to provide information and advice on the implementation and promotion of policies on equality and non-discrimination with a particular focus on advocacy, the media and monitoring.

The seminars will be practical in nature and participants will have the opportunity to share experiences and good practice, important in these days of funding cuts and dwindling resources.  They are mainly targeted at NGOs working at grass roots level and who would benefit from:

  • more in-depth knowledge on how to work effectively with the media
  • knowing how to set advocacy goals and objectives and identify methods and tools
  • understanding how monitoring can be used to tackle discrimination and address disadvantage

Representatives from Local Authorities, Equality Bodies and Trade Unions are also welcome to apply.

Please click here to download the application form in word format. The form should be returned by Sunday 15 January at the latest.

The number of places is unfortunately limited and participation may be subject to a selection procedure (geographical spread and representation across discrimination grounds). Small travel bursaries are available on application.
