ABOUT PROMAS ONLINE
Promas Online Ltd was established following the success of Promas CIC, a community interested company which offers award-winning face to face training for unpaid carers. We recognised through our professional and personal life that caring for someone can be tough. Carers don’t often get the support they need to manage their caring role and often become unwell. We wanted to make a difference and to help carers to take care by putting them first. We offer courses that change carers’ lives. Whether it’s managing stress, finding coping strategies, understanding Dementia, Caring for yourself or Caring for someone with Mental Health to name but a few of our courses, we can help.
Our award-winning face to face courses have been so successful that we wanted to find a way to ensure all carers can access them, regardless of where they live, regardless of their caring role, regardless of time constraints. Offering the courses online, through Promas Online is our way of reaching and supporting more unpaid carers. Our service was built to change lives, so please try our courses.
Promas Online Workbooks
The Promas Online workbook is an additional resource, available for £9.99 which is an A5 book which can be used alongside the online courses. The book includes worksheets, illustrations and charts for a carer to note down answers and keep records of how their situation is changing as they progress through the courses. For more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can order a book online.
