"Better Health for Carers can develop a programme which will empower carers to become more to resilient, through professional training, workshops and courses, which will practically and holistically support and mentor other carers, within a friendly and social environment."
The above was the conclusion reached after an independent evaluation of 10 years funding by the Big Lottery of a Carers Health Support Service in 2017. Based on this and successful application, we have been awarded funding for another 3 years, for a sustainability project to deliver a Carers empowerment through health service.
In the first year, carers will be empowered in their caring role through the following workshops:
In the second year, 10 Carers leads will be trained to co-deliver the empowerment programme (covering topics from year 1) to other carers. Training will be certificated or accredited.
In the third year, 10 carers' leads will directly deliver the programme to carers.
