New self-management course – places available
Our staff and volunteer tutors have recently undergone training to deliver an updated version of Looking After Me. There are new elements that we know carers will want to learn about – we’ve learnt a lot ourselves!
The next course starts in October. It runs for 2.5 hours each week for 6 weeks.
If you need someone to stay with the person you care for, so that you can come to the course, please ring us and we will see if we can arrange ad pay for it. We can also pay for a taxi for you, if you cannot use public transport.
If you are interested please contact Melanie or Louella on 01422 369101
or firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
