Young Adult Carers Awareness Training

Thursday, 27 May, 2021 - 10:00 to 11:30

Redbridge Carers Support Service would like to invite you to attend their Young Adult Carers Awareness Training webinar.

This training is intended for all staff who work with carers, and those providing frontline support to vulnerable young adults aged 14–30. There are at least 376,000 young adult carers in the UK and they are likely to be in every school, college, university and workplace. If you work with someone who has physical or mental health difficulties, a learning disability, alcohol/substance misuse, is ill, frail or elderly, then they could have a carer.

This free webinar will give participants the awareness and skills:

  • to identify young adult carers
  • to support them in their caring role
  • to encourage them to have a life outside of caring
  • to signpost young adult carers to appropriate sources of support.

The event will be held over Zoom on 27 May 2021 from 10:00am to 11:30am.
