Caring with Confidence
Caring with Confidence is a knowledge and skills based programme which aims to help carers make a positive difference to their life and that of the person they care for. Carers can mix and match how they further develop their knowledge and skills - by taking part in one or more free, local group sessions, by using self-study workbooks or by accessing online sessions.
Caring with Confidence is part of the Government's 'New Deal for Carers' - an initiative aimed at improving support for carers. It enhances the training already available and helps to provide learning opportunities where there is currently little available. It is not designed to replace existing provision.
