Carers Awareness Training

This is a free training resource for anyone, to increase their knowledge and awareness of unpaid carers. 

You can also choose to become a Carer Champion in your organisation, school or community group. Becoming a Champion is not a requirement and support from us, including badges and lanyards, is only available to Champions in Brighton and Hove.

A Carer Champion is a first point of reference for any unpaid carers in their organisation, school or community group.

The modules are divided into the four distinct categories below. Only one module needs to be completed and they take about 45 to 60 minutes to complete.

A downloadable certificate of completion is available to all. Champions can download a Champions Certificate and receive a lanyard and badge from us.
