EVA VCS Cost of Living Network training

Advice first aid – how to support people facing hardship

Tuesday 5 March 2024 | 9.30am to 4.30pm, with lunch provided | Community House, 311 Fore Street, Edmonton, London N9 0PZ

Advice first aid aims to strengthen the capacity of local community groups to support people who face hardship.  

This in-person training workshop from Citizens Advice Enfield is solely for representatives of local voluntary and community organisations who can cascade learning and information for the benefit of colleagues and Enfield residents.

Please note that representatives from statutory bodies will be put on a waiting list in the event of any spare places. 

By the end of the training session, participants will: 

  • Have a better understanding of people’s rights in relation to benefits, housing and debt
  • Be able to use online resources to find and share information about help with the cost of living
  • Be able to identify when someone needs advice and provide signposting or referral
  • Be able to identify when an advice referral is needed urgently and make the appropriate referrals
  • Have built networks and increased your knowledge of local support.

About your attendance confirmation

It is very important that you let us know if you can’t attend a training course or event, or if you are going to be late (so we know that you are coming).

Please let us know by phoning 020 8373 6268 (leave a message) or email us on admin@enfieldva.org.uk

This is because we often have a waiting list of people from other local community groups who would like to attend.

If you don’t turn up on the day – and have not let us know so we can give your place to someone else – you will be depriving another Enfield community group of an important education or networking opportunity. Please help others in the voluntary sector by letting us know if you can’t take up your training place.
