Our aim is to support and empower Carers in their caring role through a programme of flexible, responsive and varied training events. This is an ideal way for Carers to gain knowledge whilst meeting other Carers in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
All the trainers we use are well experienced and are aware of the issues that Carers face. Courses vary and topics range from practical help with caring such as Moving and Handling and Access to Rights & Benefits, through to areas that focus on the Carer’s own well being and development, such as Stress Management and Confidence & Assertiveness. We even deliver some more leisure based topics such as Aromatherapy, or exploring arts and crafts.
Carers Gloucestershire also work in partnership with other agencies, such as Adult Education, to provide supported opportunities in mainstream learning.
