Carer Awareness Training
Free, two-hour online session offering an introduction to York Carers Centre, and looking at how anyone in the community can identify and support unpaid carers of all ages:
- An opportunity for health/social care/education/voluntary sector professionals and anyone in the community to learn more about the support available for unpaid carers across the city.
- Increase your understanding of carers, their role and the effect of caring on their lives.
- Explore how you can help to identify carers early, recognise them as ‘partners’ in care and help carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing.
The sessions include a presentation from our Training Officer, sharing of information around current carer issues (such as Covid-19 and isolation), discussions, a quiz and sharing links to carer films on YouTube.
One of our volunteer carer champions joins us to share her experience of caring, and what types of support can help.
Courses run regularly throughout the year and are held online.
