We have a strong base of Carer Trainers but there are areas where we need to recruit.

If you're a carer of someone who receives services from the Older Persons and Physical Disability Team (especially of someone who is elderly) or of someone with dementia and would like to be involved in training on an occasional basis, we would like to hear from you.

The carer trainer unit provides ongoing support and training for carers through the Carer Trainer Project Worker.

Carer trainers have at least two training days a year together to refresh and enhance their own skills and to discuss issues in regard to carer training.

Carer trainers have opportunities to meet together to discuss issues in regard to carer training.

We can pay for alternative care for the person you care for while you train to become a carer trainer and later on when you do carer training.

Please contact us and request a Carer Trainer Information Pack.

** NEEDED URGENTLY **

The Carer Trainer Unit is often asked to support training sessions for care workers about Moving and Handling – including the use of a hoist.

If you have experience of caring for someone who is disabled and who needs support with moving, getting up etc. then we would like to hear from you.  Your knowledge and experience could help care workers when they carry out this work in someone’s home.
