Training for your scheme or project


Training is a key building block of the Two’s Company befriending scheme model offered by Linking Lives UK.

This section of our website includes resources for self-directed learning, for revisiting session you have attended, and to use in delivering live training when appropriate.

You will only be able to access those resources and services you are subscribed to.
