This project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and the European Social Fund.
We offer free help and support to prepare you for employment
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 have ever thought about turning your existing caring skills into paid employment, then we can help. Our free training and programmes could work around your existing commitments.
Helping you to learn at a pace that is right for you and your caring responsibilities.
Some of the duties that you carry out on a daily basis could help you to find extra income, we understand how financially difficult it can be, providing care to a loved one.
Here at The Disability Resource Centre we can help you to gain some free professional training.
Find some time in your week to focus on you and your needs.
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.
