Communications and Advocacy
Effective communication is essential to any advocacy campaign. Promoting your message across several media – print, radio, tv and online – at local and national level will get your message out there and draw the attention of policy makers and the public to what you are trying to achieve.

Facilitation Skills
As membership of PPNs grows, it is more important than ever that those involved have the key skills required to ensure that their membership feels heard and understood, that meetings add value to the functioning of the PPN and that consultations deliver a clear mandate for the PPN to work from.

To achieve this, those representing the PPNs or other organisations / colleges need to have good facilitation skills.

Training will take place from 2pm to 4pm.
