Free training for Wiltshire family carers

Free training for Wiltshire family carers

We believe in supporting our community and with family carers taking some of the strain from the social care system, we want to help with free training.

If you are a family carer, providing home care for your loved one then we would like to help support you by providing you with free training.

We will train you on:

  • Manual handling
  • First aid
  • Food safety and nutrition

Who is a family carer?

If you're providing support to a partner, friend, relative or a neighbour then you are a carer. As a carer, it's important that you get the support you need to help you to keep yourself well, and enable you to provide the best support for the person you care for.

Partnership with Carer Support Wiltshire

We are working in partnership with Carer Support Wiltshire who can help you to access free counselling, benefits advice, support groups, and more. Their support services are completely free and confidential.

Where is the training held?

The carer training is held in our offices which are located just off the town centre at:

Handle House
Stallard Street
Trowbridge
BA14 8HN

How do I book my training?

If you would like to attend our free carer training, please contact Jessica on 01225 719 333

When is the training?

We hold our free carer training every month, please ask Jessica for details.

Do you need care cover for whilst you are attending the training?

We provide the training for free, and we can provide a care worker to cover your caring duties whilst you attend, however there will be a charge for this. You may be able to obtain some funding for this though. Please contact us and we will be able to advise further to help.
