CARER AWARENESS E-LEARNING COURSE

Social Care Wales and NHS Wales have jointly developed a Carer Awareness E-learning Course.

This e-learning course aims to raise understanding and awareness of carers by exploring key topics:

  • who is a carer;
  • the types of support carers provide;
  • the impact of a caring role can have;
  • what carers need
  • carers’ rights and entitlements, the law and where to find out what support is available

With over 370,000 carers in Wales and 3 in 5 people providing care for someone at some point in their lives, carers make up most of the support given to people within our society.

Whilst some of these carers are aware of the support available to them, others will not see themselves as carers. Therefore, identification of carers is vital for them to know where they can find help. The earlier this identification happens the better to support carers’ health and well-being.

The course will take about 45 minutes to complete, and following successful completion, a certificate will be downloadable for personal development records.
