These range from maximising your income as a carer, right through to taking time to look after your own health and wellbeing.
The sessions are FREE for carers; they usually take place between 10am and 1pm to include brunch and light refreshments.
There is help available to get carers to the venues and for arranging alternative care, should it be required.
What do carers think?
More than 150 carers have already attended the sessions at venues across the county and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, as eloquently demonstrated by the comments below.
"I am pleased that I was able to attend the carers' sessions. I have met a lot of lovely different friends; everyone has got different problems, you learn a lot and it gives you time to relax. Yes I would recommend it."
"The Caring with Confidence course enabled me to meet other carers with similar issues and I realised that I was not alone. I was able to gain valuable information about being a carer and how to look after yourself. The sharing of problems was also a great help because fellow carers fully understand and appreciate what you are going through. Thanks for a great course."
