Improve your confidence. Reduce stress.

New course starts in February. We have just started the first group on this course and we’re now looking for more Luton residents to join the next course that starts in February.

We know and understand how difficult it can be to find work if you are a carer. You may struggle to find paid employment that fits around your caring commitments. 

If you wish to return to work in some way, but are unsure how to start, then we can help with 1-2-1 support with our employment advisors.

For 2020 if you would like to make a difference to your family’s life just make contact to see how our Support Into Employment programme may be able to help you.

Learn all about becoming a volunteer for our charity at our special new volunteer event on Wednesday 5th February 2020. Read more about volunteering at The Disability Resource Centre.
