Training pack

In 2012, there was a research study into carers’ access to training. This was followed by a pilot project to develop the role of a paid carer demonstrator. A paid carer demonstrator safely shows carers practical care techniques in their own homes. 

A resource pack for developing the carer demonstrator role has been developed and is available below.
