Carers Voices training for carers launched

01 February 2012

Are you looking after someone?  Would you like a say in how services could support you in your caring role?

Carers Scotland is providing free training to unpaid carers living in the South of Glasgow so they can better get their voices heard and develop better communication skills when talking to medical staff and social workers.

The courses are specifically for two wide ranging carer groups; carers from Black and Minority Ethnic communities and carers looking after someone with a mental health condition.  

Anne Conlin, Training and Development Manager at Carers Scotland said “Many carers find it difficult to find their way around local services and it’s not always easy to state what you need with confidence.  Even finding out the right person in health or social work for can be difficult. This course tries to address some of these issues, so that carers are better equipped to look after or advocate for themselves”

The course also has a local focus on South Glasgow so it is as relevant as possible for carers.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided and there will be help with transport and respite, if required. 

The courses will take place on:

  • 21 February and 29 February for mental health carers in the Festival Business Centre, Govan, Glasgow
  • 13 March and 20 March for BME carers in the Destiny Church, Shawlands, Glasgow

For more information or to book your place, please call Carers Scotland on 0141 445 3070 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to email.
