The WEA is a voluntary organisation which is committed to providing adult education through an inclusive, local and engaging way. Come and see what the WEA is all about...we may just have a course around the corner from you!
This is a short video sharing the activities that Workers' Educational Association (WEA) students have taken part in as part of a research project that was exploring creative adult community learning and participatory arts initiatives to help people with their mental health recovery.
About the research
The WEA west Midlands has been awarded £117,431 from the Big Lottery Fund Reaching Communities programme for its Aspire project based in Wyre Forest, Worcestershire.
One of the core values of the WEA is that learning is for everyone and learning is for life. Through adult education, we provide disadvantaged and isolated communities a chance to re-engage with education and help them feel that anything is possible.
The Get Out Stay Well Project has been renewed another year of funding from the NHS Stoke on Trent Clinical Commissioning Group. Courses have been developed for in-patients about to be discharged from hospital and regular users of out-patient services to support them in independent and healthy living.
