Putting you first
Family Carers Ireland Education and Training Programmes provide family carers with information, knowledge, insights and practical tips to help you develop new understanding and skills important in your caring role while raising your awareness of self-care when providing care for a family member.
Many carers put their own health and wellbeing low on their list of priorities. A range of self-care tools and techniques is explored throughout our programmes to assist you to discover a technique that works for you and supports your own well-being. Learning and Education also helps you to develop a greater understanding of your role, and can give you new or enhanced skills that support you in your caring role, or create new opportunities for you outside of that role.
All our courses aim to help you create a better balance between your responsibilities as a carer and your own personal wellbeing. Getting this balance right will also improve the health and wellbeing of the person you care for.
As a family carer you may have given up paid work or education to take care of a family member or friend. You may want to return to work or study but perhaps you’re unsure how best to go about it? Learn more below about our FREE Working Care Out programme and take that first step into your future.
