A Wales-specific, user-friendly resource, this toolkit was developed in partnership with Learning and Work Institute to increase awareness of student carers and their specific needs, promote existing good practice from colleges and carers services and offering expert recommendations.I work in:Location:
ADVANCE was an innovative volunteer mentoring programme developed by Carers Trust for chief executives of Network Partners in The Carers Trust Network across the UK. It ran from 2015 to 2018 and is backed by materials for you to download (all available below).
This good practice guide, funded by Welsh Government, is designed to be used by regional partnership boards, local authorities, local health boards and third sector organisations in Wales to support the identification and commissioning of good services for unpaid carers.Area of Care:Outcomes:Location:
