Upcoming training opportunities – Carer Awareness

‘Identifying and supporting carers’; an introduction to York Carers Centre.

This one off training session is an opportunity for professionals to learn more about York Carers Centre and the support available for unpaid carers across the city. This will increase your understanding of carers, their role and its effect on their lives.

It is an opportunity to explore how we as professionals working in the health and social care field can help to identify carers early; recognise them as ‘partners’ in care;  and help carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing.

The dates for training are:

26 March 1.30 to 3.30pm

30 April 1.30 to 3.30pm

3 July 1.30 to 3.30pm

8 October 1.30 to 3.30pm

The contact for bookings is: Sam Varo, Business Support Administrator at Vale of York CCG
