ONSIDE 'Connection' sessions

Online learning post-project

The ONSIDE team wish for our participants to continue developing and utilising their digital skills to create community connections post-project. To support this we facilitate an ‘ONSIDE Connection’ series for our past and present participants. This series involves inviting an organisation or topic expert to present to our participants via Zoom. 

We cover a range of topics that will inform, inspire and empower participants from independent living, to minding your mental health to staying safe online. Previous participants include: The Consumer Council, Ulster Bank, Aware NI, Libraries NI, My Way Access, Centre for Independent Living, Men’s Health Forum and Chair Yoga.  

Do you offer advice or a service that could benefit our participants? 

If you feel your organisation can provide advice, information or advocate for our participants you may benefit from partaking in an ‘ONSIDE Connection’ session. We will invite participants along to a Zoom session where you can present and take part in a Q&A. These ‘Connection’ sessions are relaxed and informal, they provide a safe space for participants to find out more about topics relevant to them, their family and support units. 

If your organisation would like to get involved telephone 02890 297880 or 00353 18730455 or email: info@onsideproect.org
