The Community Learning Exchange offers communities the opportunity to learn through the exchange of ideas and the sharing of common solutions. When community groups make visits to other communities, the most valuable part is often meeting new people with similar interests and gaining new insights and perspectives on shared challenges.
The Exchange will also fund follow up support between organisations. This might be as a result of a learning visit when it is recognised that more specific and on-going help, support, or advice is required.
They now offer a blended form of the Community Learning Exchange which can include either virtual or face to face visits.
