We provide workshops for employers who wish to support staff with caring responsibilities for an older person, often as part of their well-being strategy. We also have a tailored offer for community organisations or agencies who support carers. Further detail of our offer, which is highly participative, including role-playing, problem-solving and sharing, can be found here.
We piloted our highly-interactive workshops at Cambridge University Press as part of their employee well-being programme before rolling them out to public and private sector organisations in the East of England, including Addenbrookes and Medimmune in Cambridge. Our evaluation of the workshops shows the really positive impact that they have on the morale and self-belief of carers as they realise that their experience is shared by colleagues and that they can work together with peers to find solutions and understand how to manage their caring role around their work and family commitments. As one participant said, "I have never had this conversation at work before".
Our inspirational trainers, led by Bev Jones, former drama coach and headteacher, are available to deliver workshops onsite at your premises at a time and in a format to meet your particular needs. Contact us to discuss how we can help.
