About our courses
Community First New Forest offers training sessions to our members, community groups and organisations, as well as individuals. In most cases, there will be a charge for the training, but if you become a member of Community First New Forest (membership is free) this will be offered at a reduced rate.
After going on training we can signpost on to further training or development opportunities if you wish. We are always interested to hear of new courses or arrange different subjects to be introduced to the programme.
Training may be on an informal basis, for example, a one to one session, or it can be for up to a hundred people at one time. If we cannot provide the training you ask for we can normally direct you to the right place that can provide what you are looking for.
