During a consultation in January, local Age UKs highlighted a desire for more information on the role of creativity in relation to wellbeing and get practical knowledge and ideas for local development. As a result, Age UK Oxfordshire have designed four online training sessions running in May 2021 and are offering free places to colleagues across Age UK. Find out all the details below including how to register.
