Family and unpaid carers

Family members and unpaid carers are now able to access training FREE of charge.

Thanks to funding from the Local Workforce Action Board and Cheshire and Mersey Transforming Care Partnership, CWP in partnership with parent-carers, has developed a suite of training packages for family members, other unpaid carers, support workers and personal assistants.

The training covers a range of areas that families have told us are important to them, learning topics include:

  • Family and carers as partners
  • Healthcare for people with learning disabilities
  • STOMP for carers
  • Communication
  • Children and young people
  • Preparing for adulthood
  • Law, ethics and safeguarding

Completed modules are designed to be dynamic and feedback from users will be used to improve the content and learning experience.

The first modules are available now, to sign up for the training please email cwp.canddid@nhs.net with your name and email address.
