– Carer Awareness Training

29/09/2021 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Free two hour session offering an introduction to York Carers Centre, and looking at how anyone in the community can identify and support unpaid carers:

  • An opportunity for professionals to learn more about the support available for unpaid carers across the city.
  • Increase understanding of carers, their role and its effect on their lives.
  • Explore how professionals working in the health and social care field, or anyone in the community, can help to: identify carers early; recognise them as ‘partners’ in care; 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 of links to carer films on YouTube. One of our volunteer carer champions shares her experience of caring, and what types of support can help.

Courses run regularly throughout the year, currently on Zoom.
