Reaching People Together
Reaching People Together is a partnership project which aims to provide support to some of the vulnerable and hard to reach people in our community.
Across Hampshire, there are wide range of local charities and community-led groups providing support to disadvantaged or vulnerable people, and many will have issues that Citizens Advice could help with. By working in partnership with these local organisations, we plan to get our advice and support out to those who need it most and at the earliest possible stage.
Advice First Aid is one of the strands of the project. Advice First Aid is a free half day online interactive training course which is aimed at community workers and volunteers. This programme is exactly like medical ‘first aid’ – and will help trainees identify the problem, provide some initial, basic help but also know when, and how, to call in the experts when need them.
Citizens Advice Rushmoor is delivering Advice First Aid training which is adapted to engage with groups who may be most at risk of experiencing health inequality (with particular focus on the BAME community).
Our upcoming training dates are,
4th April 2022 : 10:00 – 13: 00 PM
21st April 2022: 17:30 – 20:30 PM (Evening)
