Training, Events & Information Sessions
Each year the Centre offers face to face and virtual training, events and information sessions to support you in your caring role which are based on feedback about the topics and issues that carers find helpful. Our training and information sessions take place during morning, afternoon and evening times slots to help you find the most convenient time to attend.
