This six week course provides information and advice in an informal and relaxed setting. The kinds of things that are covered include:

  • Getting help from health and social care services – who does what?
  • Finding out more about welfare benefits
  • What can I do in a crisis?
  • Confidentiality and information sharing
  • Getting the balance right: looking after yourself whilst looking after someone else
  • Handling difficult situations and managing conflict
