Training is not like that, we prefer to use the word ‘workshop’. You will not be asked to do anything you don’t want to, you can join in as much or as little as you like. Devon Carers respond to carers needs and our training is carer led. We always want to hear from you about what you would like to learn to help support you in your caring role.
Our workshops/courses are very informal and we work on a problems/solutions model. You will join other carers in the same situation. We encourage you to try it and attend as there is always a friendly supportive atmosphere. After carers have attended their first session, they do tend to join other workshops and their feedback is very positive. The social interaction between carers is something that they have found very beneficial and some who have made good connections with each other have agreed to meet socially at another time.
