It’s now just over six weeks since we first announced HANDI and progress continues to be amazing. We have had 355 people register with HANDI and the numbers continue to grow.

Our first workshop takes place in Newcastle next week and is sold out! The London workshop is still four weeks away we have already filled 65% of the available places and expect this to “sell out” too.

We will shortly be opening bookings for the Warwick workshop on June 13. This venue has the largest capacity of the three initial events and we hope to be able to accommodate anyone we have to turn away from the other events as well as those for whom Warwick is the first choice.

HANDI plans to build local clusters round each of the workshop locations and we have busy building links. We hope to be able to identify some individuals to help us take these local clusters forward from each of the workshop and have lots of ideas for follow-up activities.

We are also working on workshops in Scotland and South Wales and now have a group of members who want to facilitate a workshop in Leeds. If you can help with any of these events or the local clusters that we hope will be built around them please get in touch.

We also started work building a new web using the Drupal open source CMS.  This will help us serve our growing community more effectively. This platform will support discussion forums, a knowledge repository and a “dating” service that will help members identify those with who opportunities for cooperation may exist. We have lots more ideas for the web platform and would welcome help from any of you with relevant skills and experience to help us build it faster.

Audio and slides from the Newcastle Meeting will be available here soon as will details about or plans for future activities for the Newcastle Cluster.
