“This is a fantastic opportunity for our community groups and clubs to jump online and access free professional development sessions,” he said.

“The sessions are designed to give groups the tools to bolster skills and assets, increase inclusion for all members of the community and build stronger clubs.”

The first webinar, Social Inclusion and Disability Awareness, will be start at 6.30pm on Wednesday 1 June. Community groups can learn the theories of social inclusion and how they can become more welcoming for all people.

Mr Martin encouraged all groups to register for one, or all, of the webinars.
