We offer a range of training and workshops to help you care with confidence. From learning practical skills such as first aid and back care to focusing on areas such as stress, anxiety and assertiveness.

 

We look forward to welcoming you back with our new programme from September onwards, which we’re currently working on.

Our friends at Thriving Carer have created a series of webinars that you can access in your own time.

Each video has subtitles and we can send Carers the presentations and resources sheet. Email us at info.nel@carerssupportcentre.com
