Carer Awareness Training

25/05/2021 10:30 am - 12:30 pm |

Our free, face to face, group training sessions are an opportunity for organisations, community groups or employers to come and learn more about unpaid carers and the support available to carers across the city. This will increase your understanding of carers, their role and its effect on their lives.

We will explore how the community, professionals and employers can identify carers early, recognise and work with carers as partners in care,  and help carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing.  Dates for 2021 are:

  • Mon 26 April
  • Tues 25 May
  • Weds 30 June
  • Mon 26 July
  • Tues 24 Aug
  • Weds 29 Sept

Sessions all run from 10.30am to 12.30pm and are led by our Training and Volunteer Officer Sam Ferguson.

Currently all of the above sessions are on Zoom.
