EPIC Training: Voices for Change, Creating Change


The project provides FREE training course to help you get your voice heard and take action on issues that are important to you.

Do you feel that there is a need for change in the communities where we live and across Scotland in general? Have you ever had something to say on an issue but didn’t know who was best to say it to? Ever wondered how decisions get made in the Scottish Government and who makes them?

Then this training is for you!

We currently have no training dates schedueld.  However, if you would specifically like training in your area contact the EPIC team.

Two day training course on:

  • How to get your voice heard in the right places and the best way to do it
  • How decisions are made, who makes them and how you can get involved
  • What the Scottish Government is doing to tackle poverty and how you can be heard on issues that you think are important.
  • Understanding what is being done on issues that you think are important.

This training will provide:

  • Information on future opportunities to meet with decision makers in the Scottish Government to make your voice heard
  • Opportunities to meet with other people and organisations working on similar issues to come together and make your voice stronger
  • Opportunities to meet with key people who work on different issues
  • Support to carry out actions after the training.

This training is aimed specifically at the following groups:

  • Individuals who have experience of poverty related issues (i.e. living on a low wage/benefits, living in a disadvantaged community etc)
  • Smaller community based and voluntary organisations working on the ground with people who are facing the issues.

If you are a larger organisation and you work with people who are affected by these issues and think it may be of benefit to them please get in touch also.

Training sessions are free and contributions to childcare costs and travel are available. Refreshments will be provided.
