been off away from the blog and internet for a few days (my christmas post was written in advance - a cool feature of typepad). anyway i'm still off work but back blogging...
some events in January?February not to miss:
Meeting Them Where They Are At is a seminar on detached youth work by Nigel Pilmott and Richard Passmore. It's being held at St John's church, Richmond (London) which is next to Richmond train and tube station.
It will cost £5.
It's on 15 January at 7:30pm
Richard Passmore's book is brilliant. In my view he is the single best trainer on detached youthwork - who has both done it successfully but has translated that doing it into ideas/concepts that others can get hold of and apply in their own contexts. Nigel is also a very creative inspiring person. So make the most of it.
