Education

Carers have as much right as anyone else to participate in learning and education.

The Care Act 2014 introduced a general duty for local authorities to promote an individual’s ‘wellbeing’. Your wellbeing may be affected by not being able to participate in work, education, training or recreation, so if you feel that it is important for you to attend a particular course or further training, please think about how it would benefit you and make sure you explain this at your carers assessment.

For further information on engaging in education, visit

We are able to offer a range of training courses to support you in your caring role. We have online and face-to-face courses on a wide range of subjects.
