The Programme

The programme will help individuals to maintain their own wellbeing that will enhance their resources for their caring role. When those caring for someone come together to do the course there is a mutual understanding and support for each other that enriches the ability to care and feel more supported.

In the care industry it can feel as though there is not enough time – we found people related to the following statements when apprehensive about making time for the programme:

‘You will make the time for what is important’ (often people in a caring role only see the individual(s) they care for as a priority, however carers have realised through the course that they need to look after themselves too).

‘Don’t wait as the time will never be right’ (Often carers express that there will be a better time, when the individual(s) they care for are at school or not so unwell. However, they often share that there is always a reason to not get involved, if they let life’s events get in the way of making the time for themselves)
