Wexford Local Development is rolling out a series of free Community Leadership & Capacity Building Courses in the districts of Enniscorthy, Wexford and New Ross commencing in the autumn.

The course will provide opportunities to explore an understanding of community, the role of the leader, look at building capacity to represent others, consider how to work well with conflict, how to engage with public bodies and build awareness of intercultural & cross-cultural communication.

Two places are available per community group with a maximum of 12 groups on each course (24 places in total).  Interested participants should be available to attend all four 1.5 day blocks being held at your preferred location.
