To book call the Carers Advice Line on 01785 606675. No previous experience with horses is required.

🌟 Upcoming Caring and Support Skills Workshops 🌟

We are mid way through our series of free workshops will covering all aspects of caring, to give family Carers the confidence, support, and skills needed in their role. To look ahead at forth coming topics please refer to the poster below. Some of the workshops include moving and handling techniques (for the person they care for) and safe medication management.  Whether caring is a new part of your life, or you have been caring for a long time, we are aiming to give family Carers the same skills as paid care workers.

Visit our Caring and Support Skills page for more details about what you will learn in each workshop.

Carers Together – Online

Carers across Staffordshire can join our online support group, Carers Together, to keep connected. If you can’t attend Carers Together in the Community in Penkridge, this is the perfect option to still ensure you socialise with others each week. Getting online might be new to some Carers however, we can talk you through some simple steps to join us. You can read more about our Carers Together and the support you can get here
