Last Autumn we ran a number of workshops for carers covering everything from Understanding Dementia to Time for Me. These were very well received and 93% of the people who attended felt more confident after the workshops. As a result we are running some more!
We are running the 5 week long “Who Carers for Carers” course, at the CoEL Offices in Musselburgh covering a range of topics including: advocacy, benefits, Self-Directed Support, and managing stress. Sessions will run from 10 am to 12.30 including lunch and are a great opportunity to meet other people in a similar situation in a relaxed setting. See attached Carers training course flyer
Other sessions on specific issues are also taking place at different venues throughout the county, see attached Carer Workshops 2015 All workshops are free and CoEL may be able to help with costs of attending. To book or for more info speak to Sharon or Lynne on 0131 665 0135.
