Who is the training for?Our courses are offered to carers caring for a partner, relative, neighbour or friend who is ill, has a disability or is frail The only requirements are that you are a carer, you are over 18 and you live in Renfrewshire. If you live outside of Renfrewshire, but the person you care for lives in Renfrewshire, we will still try to arrange your carer training. You do not have to be a full time carer – you may just provide a couple of hours of help each week or you could be caring for a loved one 24/7.
How will the training help me?'Training for Carers in Renfrewshire' provides short training courses for carers to improve their caring skills and knowledge, and opportunities to learn from other carers. As a result it is hoped that carers will feel more comfortable and confident in their caring role.
