Challenge the stigma attached to mental health and broaden your understanding of common conditions, how they can affect lifestyle choices and the impact on people experiencing mental illness through a series of group activities, discussions, presentations and media clips.

The term care conjures up a range of images, ideas and definitions, such as ‘the provision of something necessary for the health, welfare and protection of something or someone’ or ‘attention or consideration applied to doing something correctly’

It can provide us with images of nursing, residential settings or care in your own home, children and young people, the elderly or people living with an illness or a disability.

Those who work in care environments as well as the unpaid carers caring for loved ones.

Education and training plays a significant role in developing the skills and abilities needed to ensure that the delivery of any aspect of care is effective and high quality with front-line staff evidencing the values and competencies required to achieve excellent outcomes for the individuals receiving care and support.

Each of our training sessions or courses are designed and developed with the requirements of employers and care providers in mind as well as the need to develop a skilled and competent workforce of front-line healthcare support workers, whilst also taking into account the individuals who receive care and support in any form.

Whether mandatory training, simply for your own personal development or to better understand how you as a care provider can improve the experience of someone receiving care.

From an introduction to working in care to more specialist areas such as Motor Neurone, first aid or clinical courses the overall aim is to allow attendees to explore topics themselves rather than ‘being taught’ expanding on already existing knowledge or understanding to develop a broader perspective on their chosen area for learning.  With the use of a wide range of resources throughout session delivery and our sessions being thought provoking, interactive and engaging we are committed to providing a positive experience for all.
