Carers and employment / training
It can be difficult to find the right balance between caring and working. You can find useful information on your rights at work and taking time off to care for someone on the NHS Choices website.
Training for carers
We can offer support to find the right course, and help with funding and arranging alternative care.
Some colleges run courses specifically for carers. These courses are held in informal, friendly environments where you are encouraged to find a study programme to suit your learning styles, caring duties and personal aims.
