Woodland skills course for Working Denbighshire participants

A number of Working Denbighshire participants recently attended a bespoke training course delivered at the Woodland Skills Centre in Bodfari.

The Council's Working Denbighshire project provides one-to-one support to individuals, working with them to achieve their personal goals using a variety of activities.

The Woodland Skills Centre is based in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and those attending had a chance to build self-confidence, self-esteem, the ability to work individually and in a group alongside learning new skills.

All participants completed a Level 3 Emergency First Aid course and gained certificates for Coppice Crafts and Green Woodwork.

The Council is committed to developing and building resilient communities across the most deprived areas, focusing on tackling poverty by providing support that helps people into work, volunteering and education, removing barriers into employment.

We'd like to congratulate all those who took part in the course. The group very quickly developed a rapport, forming a supportive group who interacted and communicated well, helping each other and working as a team. They have gained new skills and experiences and grown in confidence, increased self-esteem and displayed an overall improvement in well-being.
