Training for Volunteers & Staff

Equipping Ordinary People to Make a Real Difference

The aim of The Matthew Tree Project is to invest in our people, volunteers and staff, by way of effective training to enable impactful support of vulnerable and at risk members of our local communities. 

We do this by developing our own in-house training programs and also providing external, more specialised training as and when it becomes available. 


If you would like to enroll for any of the advertised training courses we are holding or have links to please let us know and we will make the arrangements.
