Carers Awareness - online training

Recognising and supporting Young and Adult Carers in your workplace and in your service

Why it is so important and how to do it

There are places available on the virtual training, Webinar – Carers Awareness as follows:

Time: 10.30am - 12.15pm 

Trainers are Kevin Holcroft and Becky Evans from Credu Connecting Carers.

Purpose

This course will help you play your part in helping Young and Adult Carers have the same life chances as others.

  • Evidence shows that carers provide 96% of care in Wales and save the Welsh services over £8 billion. In spite of this important role, Carers can have poorer health, education and financial outcomes than the non-carer population but early identification of carers and support can change this.

Principles

Identifying, signposting and supporting in a way that is:

  • Person centred
  • Focuses on a person’s strengths as well as challenges.
  • Focuses on outcomes / solutions that are important to the person.
