Take part, take action: LEEDS What’s bugging you? And what are you going do about it?

“If only ‘they’d’ get on with it” … “Before ‘they’ did that, things were great” …

 

“We’re sick of promises that aren’t kept” …  “I can’t do this by myself” …

If you find yourself saying stuff like this, and want to help make a difference in your community or city, come to Take Part, Take Action

Saturday 19th March 2011    10am—4pm

 

at Dyson’s Chambers, 12-14 Lower Briggate, LS1 6EP (the old Job Centre)   

Take Part, Take Action is about meeting like-minded people, talking and thinking about the changes we want to make, sharing ideas and stories, getting inspired, and finding support.

 

 

We’re offering free ongoing short-term support including:

 

·         training to set up and run community projects

 

·         specialist support to help you get your project idea or campaign going

 

·         small pots of money to help you get started

 

·         opportunities to get involved in established community projects

You don’t need special skills or experience – just a desire to see things change. Coming to the day doesn’t commit you to anything… but you might just meet some great people and end up changing your community.

Lunch provided – tell us your special dietary requirements. Bring cake to share, if possible.

Bike Maintenance Workshop

Join STAR (Student Action for Refugees) for a Bike maintenance workshop in the Velocampus Hub.

Short Introduction to how to keep your bike healthy & happy, as well as an opportunity to work on it with the help of some experts!

Learn about STAR’s bike project which recycles second-hand bikes with asylum seekers. Asylum seekers are often unable to travel due to their allowance of cash-vouchers which restricts their movements and often to leads to isolation or depending on charities to provide travel costs. A bike helps people regain their independance and is also obviously a great way to keep fit and get around.

Come and find out more about our project and learn how to get invovled.

Cost just £1 will cover tea, coffee & cake as well as paying for the bike expert to run the session!

See you there!
