FOI Workshops

We offer Freedom of Information (FOI) workshops to anyone interested in learning the practical skills needed to start accessing information held by government bodies and exercising their right to know.

There are two workshop formats: FOI 101 and FOI 201. The 101 is an introductory course that outlines the steps to crafting an effective request and successfully following it through. The 201 is a more advanced course for those already familiar with the FOI process.
