Workshops & Short Courses

We deliver a programme of learning activities in communities across Somerset. Our range of courses and workshops is designed to support people to develop new skills, build confidence, motivation and resilience. Our goal is to support health and wellbeing, and to develop stronger communities throughout the county.

From health and wellbeing or art and crafts, to learning a new language or musical instrument, our courses will help you pick up a new skill, interact with new people and perhaps tick something off your bucket list!

Normally, our workshops run face to face, but since the COVID-19 pandemic our community learning projects have adapted to deliver remotely to continue supporting Somerset residents, so there’s still lots to choose from. Read more here… Rising To The Challenge
