5 WAYS announce autumn programme

5 WAYS has announced a number of new and returning structured courses for the autumn. This includes a new music production course, another chance to undertake the employability programme and a drama course leading to another full-scale theatre production.

Senior Practitioner at 5 WAYS Helen Mason said: “We have looked to add breadth to the courses we offer. There is a real mix so hopefully, there is something for everyone.

“5 WAYS works closely with its members to identify courses that meet their needs and interests so these courses have been developed in response to their wishes. Peer Mentoring and courses that support people into work are regularly requested by those using 5 WAYS.

“It’s a really exciting opportunity for people to learn in a safe and supportive environment”.
