Learning new skills or improving your existing knowledge can make life as a carer much easier.

Brent Carers Centre deliver a range of carer relevant training workshops designed to either develop your skills to better care for the person you are caring for or to learn more & understand the medical condition(s) of the person you are caring for. Topics include: Managing Challenging Behaviour – Dementia; Infection Control; Manual Handling plus more.

Details of our upcoming training workshops can be found in our free monthly E-Newsletter ‘Caring 4 Carers’. You will also find details of our Carer Support Groups & our Circle of Support available in different localities across Brent, both of which offer peer support and local links with other carers.
