The Hub is funded
through IFI and aims to increase community
engagement and sharing to improve relationships and encourage good will between
communities. We provide various
programmes which include skills building, trips, fun days and workshops
designed to support greater cultural understanding through learning and
engagement with each other.

This opportunity will
appeal to someone who is comfortable in a group setting and happy to take a
lead role. You will get great
satisfaction in enabling the members to develop ideas and come to new awareness
of themselves and others. This is a
great role for someone who has experience in training, teaching or working with
groups or who would like to learn these skills. Most of us fear ‘public speaking’ so if you want to overcome this fear,
why don’t you have a go in a non-threatening environment.
To read a short story
(about 7 pages) to a group of adults and lead discussions on the topic,
encourage participation and ensure order within the group.
Desirable skills and experience:
Full training is
given for this role but you will need to be a competent reader and be
comfortable leading a group. You will
need to be able to achieve a balance between taking authority and allowing
others to contribute.
