Carers Week: Supporting carers with funded training

This week, 10 - 16 June, is Carers Week 2019. We're asking you to join us in coming together to support carers, as caring without the right information and support can be tough.

There are 6.5 million people in the UK who are carers*. They look after family members and friends who have disabilities, mental or physical illnesses, and individuals who need extra help as they grow older.

Available at no cost to you or your organisation**, our courses support the learning and development of carers to improve and enhance the service they provide to individuals within their care.

Available courses include:

  • Preparing to Work in Adult Social Care
  • Principles of Dementia Care
  • Principles of End of Life Care
  • Safe Handling of Medication in Health and Social Care
  • Dignity and Safeguarding in Adult Health and Social Care.

These courses are delivered via distance learning methods, meaning that you and your staff can study at a time, and in a place, that best suits you, without affecting anyone's day-to-day roles.
