Humans Being runs a range of workshops and courses to help support your volunteers and service users.
From suicide prevention training to women’s wellbeing workshops, all of our courses take a gender-specific, evidence-based approach to empowering people to make positive changes in their lives.
Inclusion and community are at the heart of what we do. Courses are built around group sessions where participants are encouraged to build relationships by sharing experiences, discussing ideas for self-care and promoting care for one another.
These connections and friendships often last far beyond the end of the course, reducing social isolation and increasing mental resilience.
Almost all of our courses are run in partnership with community groups and charities. By teaming up with other organisations, we can reach an incredibly diverse range of people from all sections of the community.
