To support health and social care professionals in their role to work effectively and co-productively with unpaid carers, the Carer Aware project has developed resources to support this work.
These resources are aimed at those who are developing their skills and a reminder to those who work in the field on what needs to be considered to support a meaningful relationship between professionals and unpaid carers. The resources have been developed alongside Welsh NHS Confederation, BASW and Social Care Wales.
See our video resources designed for healthcare professionals that explain the rights that unpaid carers have. There are also handouts to accompany the animations.
