Training to help you provide careThere may be times when some parts of caring become difficult. Or you find you have to do something you've never done before and don't know where to start. If this is the case for you it is worth checking to see if there is help available to find easier ways to get things done.
The sort of things you may be able to get training for include:
- assertive communication
- back care
- changing lives, changing relationships
- complementary therapy
- first aid
- stress and time management
- using computers, specifically as a carer
- workshops for carers of people with learning difficulties (covering benefits and future accommodation needs)
