Event description

Description

Are you a frontline worker for a health or community service in Newcastle? How confident do you feel about understanding and talking to our diverse community? ‘Culture’ embraces a broad range of aspects, from religion to disability, and communities vary greatly from one local area to another so we have devised a flexible programme to build confidence and help you to deliver the best service possible in your community.

Our 2.5 hour Cultural Competency Session is a face-to-face interactive learning programme with activities and open discussion that we will tailor to your practice / organisation requirements; a safe space in which to ask questions and listen to real life examples about how improved cultural knowledge has been used to break down barriers and improve services.

By the end of the session you will:

  • Recognise why it is important to have an understanding of different cultures and beliefs
  • Understand key aspects of your local community cultures and wider Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities in Newcastle
  • Feel confident in applying this knowledge to your practice
  • Be able to highlight areas for improvement in your own practice and come up with new ideas for enhancing the services you deliver

Requirements, info and booking:

  • Our Cultural Competency Session has been designed by Newcastle CVS and is funded and approved by Newcastle Public Health
  • The programme is free to organisations with frontline medical and non-medical staff delivering services to residents in Newcastle
  • You do not need to have any prior experience or knowledge of cultures
