Carers Champions are volunteers who act as a voice for carers in their local community or workplace.
This training helps them to raise awareness and promote understanding of the role of an unpaid Carer.
"A Carers Champion is someone who is aware of the stresses and strains a Carer may be facing. They understand the importance of the role of a carer and can identify the signs of someone who perhaps, unknowingly, is caring.
The training with West Cumbria Carers provides information about the Charity and the services available to carers".
Attendees will gain an understanding of what it means to be a carer and some of the issues carers may face. They will also learn how to support people into taking the first step of contacting the Charity when they are ready to do so.
