Staff Training - Unpaid Carers

Co-produced Adult social Care staff training

We had a little bit of money that could be spent on supporting unpaid carers. The money was a one off amount.

Carers had told us that they didn't feel our social care staff really understood what life was like for an unpaid carer. As a result we decided to design some new carer training for our social care staff.

We invited unpaid carers to come in and help us design this as they were the ones who knew exactly what would make a difference to their experience. We talked about them helping deliver some training but due to there being a lot of staff it meant too much commitment. We then agreed that a few volunteers would come in and have recorded conversations that could form part of the staff training.

Training has now started.
