Training and support

We provide training and support to help organisations start, adapt, and grow in inclusive ways.

We can support you to build new skills, develop your idea or project, and show the impact.

We offer tailored trainings for groups, services and organisations, sharing what communities find works best. All our trainings are participative, and can be delivered online or in person.

To learn more and request training or support for your context, email Jill.k@otbds.org or use our contact form.
