Quarriers is constantly trying to develop services to meet Carers' needs. You might be looking to enter the job market due to a change in your caring role or you might like the idea of using your brain for something other than caring. The increase in confidence and self esteem from learning something new or realising how much you already know can be very powerful. We're here to help you experience that.
Current dates of our core skills and capacity building sessions, along with opportunities to gain accreditation for skills you already have, can be found on our calendar.
If would like to take up some learning which is currently not on offer, or you have suggestions for other sessions, please get in touch with the Learning Co-ordinator. Places on sessions must be booked in advance.
FACTSHEETS AND TOP TOOLS
For those of you who would like to sample what's on offer, have a look at the following factsheets. They give you a brief overview of certain topics and an insight into the information covered in some of the current learning opportunities. The tools that some contain have been proven time and again to help Carers find a more positive perspective on life and caring while helping them identify their own needs and ultimately cope better.
