The centre is currently providing training to any staff within the Inverclyde area who work with or come into contact with Carers.
This is in conjunction with the new Carers Act (Scotland) 2016, which was implemented in April 2018. The aim of the training is to raise awareness of Carers with professionals who, in turn, will provide them with information on the support available. The group of Volunteers who have personal experience of being a Carer perform throughout the short training programme as a way of educating people on what it is like to be a Carer for someone. Any worker interested in attending the training programme, which will run throughout the year, can contact the Centre for information or book a space by clicking Here. Catering will be provided for this training.
