What do people say about our training?

‘We were delighted to work in partnership with Rachel [KWMC Communications Officer] to deliver social media training, which has enabled eight Hartcliffe community leaders to take invaluable skills back to their groups. Rachel was flexible in planning the training to suit varying needs of the group. She was a clear, helpful, excellent trainer and we all got a lot out of the session.’
