Think Carer Training

Think Carer Training

Care for the Carers invites you to take part in our programme of FREE Carer Awareness Training as part of our ‘think carer’ initiative.


The training is for professionals and volunteers, and covers the following topics:

  • Unpaid carers and the impact of caring
  • The importance of ‘thinking carer’, identifying and supporting carers
  • Carers rights
  • Support available – signposting and referral
  • A ‘Carer-Friendly Community’ approach – good practice and the role we can all play to deliver the Government and NHS commitment to carers


Sessions are delivered online via Microsoft Teams.  Learners can choose to attend a shorter 1.5-hour session, which includes some brief discussion, or a longer 2.5-hour session, which includes a break and more time for discussion and interaction.
