Our courses are FREE and all include all materials and travel expenses.

Carers are requested to bring their own lunch but we provide £2.50 towards it.

If you have a specific group that needs training, or the dates or times don’t suit your needs, please let us know.

We can deliver courses on evenings and weekends and can do half-days or combine multiple topics.

Just let us know what you need.
