Training and advice for carers

Information about advice and training to help you feel confident in your caring role.

Being a carer can be a daunting task and you may often worry that you are doing something wrong or that there is more you can do. To help you, we have partnered with the Essex Wellbeing Service, Carers First and Mobilise to offer confidence and knowledge building resources for carers.

Contact the Essex Wellbeing Service to ask questions and receive advice specific to you and your situation.

Visit Carers First for a range of articles offering advice on all aspects of life as a carer. 

Sign up to the Mobilise newsletter for weekly emails full of tips and stories from other carers.

There are also courses that you can take if you want more in-depth and general advice or information.
