Carers fulfil a vitally important role in society. But all too often in the past, the work that they do hasn't been recognised or valued as it should be. Our Carer Aware online training course has been designed to help change that: it provides everyone with the knowledge and understanding they need to identify and meet the needs of carers.
Developed in collaboration with the Health & Social Care team at Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council, and fully revised and updated for the Care Act, Carer Aware is a practical, engaging and highly cost-effective online training resource that can be accessed by your staff whenever and wherever suits them.

An excellent, informative course. It was easy to use and I feel that I know much more about all the aspects of caring now.
The Carer Aware training course is made up of four bite-sized sections:
Defines "carer" and provides key facts and figures about carers and the work that they do.
Carers and the Law
Introduces the Care Act and outlines the main legal rights of carers in relation to assessment, advocacy, support and employment.
Meeting the needs of carers
Outlines the main needs of carers and the support available to meet these.
