In this training session staff will gain a better understanding of a carers' role and responsibilities through insights into various assumptions, practices, issues and factors that prevent carers from accessing essential support and services.
In this training session we will look at the ways in which you and your organisation can benefit by involving carers and explore some of the barriers that may prevent carers from becoming involved.
