Unpaid Carers training hosted by Wiltshire Council

Last year a survey went out to unpaid carers by Carer Support Wiltshire as to what unpaid carers would like to be trained on, from the results of this Wiltshire Council would like to offer a range of training to support what unpaid carers have asked for.

This training is for all aged carers.

You can book on to all of these or just the ones you are interested in by contacting (opens new window) with your name, email address and the sessions you would like to book.

There are also a wide range of courses available to you, that you can start anytime, such as training on Autism, Dementia, building Personal Resilience, and understanding the Mental Capacity Act. These courses are designed to be flexible and fit around your schedule, so you can learn at your own pace.

These course also include access to the care certificate designed to ensure everyone has the introductory skills, knowledge, and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe, and high-quality care and support. The eLearning format makes it quicker and more precise to complete.

To gain access to these course and have a look at what's available please contact (opens new window) with your name and email address. Details will then be sent on how to access the system and your individual log in details.

More face to face is coming in different areas of Wiltshire so please keep an eye out.
