Because Carers Count Training
This popular multi agency introductory course provides a thought provoking insight into the difficulties unpaid carers face in looking after a family member or friend. Although the Care Acts in 2014 put in place stronger duties on both local and health authorities to support carers, latest research reveals there is still some way to go in ensuring carers are recognised and get the support they need. At this training session, you will also get to hear more about the new national Carers Action Plan 2018 to 2020 which builds on the national Carers Strategy and Care Act 2014.
Who should attend?
“Because Carers Count” is open to anyone working with carers (including young carers and parent carers) from a variety of professional backgrounds and experience. This can include managers or planners of services, front line staff working in health or social care or education or people more indirectly involved. All can gain a greater understanding of carers’ issues and what our legal responsibilities are to carers in the light of recent legislation and guidance.
Please find the attached flyer here for information and application.
Think Carer, Think Family Training
This workshop gives practitioners across the health and social care statutory, independent and voluntary sector the opportunity to consider together how to support carers of all ages by developing a whole family, personalised and strengths based approach.
Commissioners, practitioners and providers have important duties with regards to Carers of all ages which are outlined within the Care Act 2014, The Children & Families Act 2014, the Health and Social Care Act 2012, NHS England Commitment to Carers 2014, and the most recently Government’s Carers Action Plan 2018-20 and NHS (England) Long Term Plan 2019. CQC also require evidence of carer and family involvement in their key lines of enquiry.
National and local policies and guidance also emphasise the importance of ensuring there is ‘no wrong door’ for young carers and that whoever or however a family in need comes into contact with an organisation, that a common approach and pathway is followed so as to ensure young people are protected from caring roles that impact upon their life chances.
It is therefore vital everyone delivering health and social care support understands how to meet their legal and local practice responsibilities to both adult and young carers.
Appropriate for: Practitioners from across the statutory, independent and voluntary sector who have contact with carers, young carers and the wider family in their health and social care practice.
