Redbridge Carers Support Service would like to invite you to attend Young Adult Carers Awareness Training. The training will run on two days so please specify which day you would like to attend when reserving your place.

Course Outline:
All staff who work with carers should attend this training, and those providing front line support to vulnerable young adults aged 14 - 30. If you work with someone who has physical or mental health difficulties, a learning disability,alcohol/substance misuse, is ill, frail or elderly, then it is likely they have a carer. This course will give participants the awareness and skills to support the carer in their caring role and also support them to have a life outside of caring. A lot of the information is also relevant to younger and older carers.
