SUPPORTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF UNPAID CARERS
Caring for someone can be tough. Carers don’t often get the support they need to manage their role and often become unwell themselves. Promas Online offers online training and support to help unpaid carers to deal with the challenges they face. Our courses can change carers lives. Whether its managing stress, finding coping strategies, understanding Dementia, Caring for yourself or Caring for someone with Mental Ill Health to name but a few of our courses, we can help. Our award-winning courses have been so successful in Cornwall and Plymouth that we are now offering them online to ensure that all carers can access the training, regardless of where they live or the physical and time limits that their caring role might place upon them. These courses are not pass or fail tests. Instead, they are designed to help carers to understand how they are coping and to offer tools and practical ways to help them to thrive in their role.
Please note, these courses will help carers to explore some emotions and challenges. Should you wish to speak to someone who can offer immediate support you can contact MIND on 0300 123 3393 9am to 6pm Mon to Fri or the Samaritans on 116 123 at any time of the day or night.
ARE YOU A CARER?
Many people are carers without even realising it. Our first training course is free, and it is designed to help you to understand whether you are an unpaid carer, and therefore someone who can benefit from our training, which helps you and the person that you are caring for.
USE OUR PROMAS WORKBOOK ALONGSIDE OUR ONLINE COURSES
Our courses can be taken exclusively online, but alongside the interactive online material, our courses also come with the option of a printed workbook. The workbook contains worksheets and space for notes, tailored to the courses, so that carers can make written notes and keep a record of their progress and plans.
