Weekly Customer Engagement Round-up: Third Edition

Welcome to our Customer Engagement Round-up!

Each week, we'll gather a variety of opportunities for you to explore, ranging from training and customer surveys to recruitment for customer panels.

ADHD UK is hosting online support group sessions for anyone facing ADHD challenges, whether it's you, a friend, or someone in your family. 

ADHD UK's support group sessions provide a safe space where individuals and families affected by ADHD can connect, share experiences, and find support. 

If you think someone could use these sessions, go ahead and tell them about it. To join the sessions, they just ask for a donation, even if it's just a penny.

This is a fantastic opportunity to boost your skills, whether it’s brushing up on the basics or aiming for higher qualifications. Strengthening your literacy and numerical skills can also help advance your career and boost job prospects.   

Keep in mind that full attendance is required, and you'll also need to dedicate a minimum of 3 hours per week to self-study. If this sounds like something you're keen on and you're local to the area, email talentforcare@geh.nhs.uk to express your interest. 

Once you've emailed, they'll send you a link for an initial assessment. Once completed, they'll get back to you to discuss the course details and help you with enrollment.
