The Big Skill CIC relies on funding and donations to keep our programme of free workshops in the community running. We are very fortunate to have a core team of tutors who will teach in as many places as possible, most recently over Zoom. A steep but fun learning curve for us all!

We have heard first hand from our participants of how these classes have been a virtual lifeline; preventing isolation, supporting all age groups, encouraging creativity, providing a distraction from the pandemic, and creating a new network of friends and support from all over the world.

Here are a few ways that you can help us

  • Become a Friend of the Big Skill

  • Become a Big Skill Hero

  • Be a Champion of the Big Skill

  • Share our work on Social Media
