Colony Community is a new community initiative to help busy families access information and services on their doorstep relevant to modern day family lifestyle challenges.
Colony Community offers workshops and support events on topical subjects facing parents and other members of the community.
Within the business sector, you expect to find events, share expertise and connect with business contacts; in the community however, it can be harder to find events that aren’t just socials or fundraisers but that provide information and introduce local service providers and so we fall back on word of mouth and time-consuming research instead
Colony Community aims to bridge the gap between Business and Community by connecting great local services and expertise with the wider community on subjects that could really make a difference to local families. And, by working together and keeping it local, there is then mutual benefit of all and ‘Success in Numbers’.
Workshop evenings run on pre-bookable basis and cost just £12-15 depending on the format. Three initial workshop themes are planned – Think Family Health, Think Family Finance, and Think Internet Safety. Workshop events will run 19.30-22.30 at community locations such as schools and club and society venues.
Fundraising, socialising & learning
Colony Community has selected a local charity for each of it’s workshops that relates directly to the subject matter covered. Donations will be made from ticket sales to both the hosting school or community group venue and to the nominated charity. So, whilst attendees learn and socialise, they are also putting back into their local community and third sector.
