Georgia Ellis from Blue Chip Minds provided a fresh and invigorating session to tenants. The session, Rise Up highlighted the importance of the mindset and how this can be shaped to make better decisions for our future.
Some of the comments from the training included:
“I wish I had known about this material years earlier – looking forward to practicing these tools“
“Looking forward to incorporating techniques into my everyday life“
“I am really grateful that I had the opportunity to attend this training – I hope I get to cross paths with Georgia and Blue Chip Minds again“
The room was buzzing with excitement throughout the training. Women’s Housing Ltd hope to be able to provide more training opportunities to tenants in the future.
