New Course – Fun Approaches to Community Engagement:

Using Answer Cancer resources, interactive methods, and other tools

After a year in lockdown, thinking of new ways to keep people interested and participating in group activities can feel hard work.  This new course follows on from our very popular ‘Creative Approaches to Online and Remote Engagement’ session which covers ways you can use remote methods to involve others in your workplace or community.

‘Fun Approaches’ will show you how to use ‘tools’ to make sessions FUN and interactive.   Answer Cancer have developed a collection of ready-to-use, easily downloadable factsheets, games, quizzes and resources. We will demonstrate how to use them, and how they can be tailored and adapted for online or face to face use. We will show you how to easily incorporate them into your cancer awareness raising activities to make them more engaging and appealing.

This course will run for 2 hours with a short break to grab a cuppa.
