Free Training Sessions For Carers

About Free Training Sessions For Carers

Training for Carers in Renfrewshire provides a range of different training opportunities for carers. The only requirement is that you are a carer aged over 18 and living in Renfrewshire. If you live outside Renfrewshire, but the person you care for lives in Renfrewshire, we will still try to accommodate you.

You do not have to be a full time carer – you may just provide a couple of hours of help each week or you could be caring for a loved one 24/7.

You may be over or under retirement age. All carers can benefit from the training regardless of how long you have been a carer or how much time you spend caring each week.
