Our Carers First Aid Workshops, run by the British Red Cross, have been extremely popular. Help yourself and others by learning First Aid so you have the skills and confidence to cope in a crisis. Everyone can learn a few simple, but highly-effective First Aid skills that will help someone who is ill or injured. Most of the time, the person who requires your help will be a friend or family member.
The workshop is designed to build upon your existing knowledge and instincts and will give you more confidence to help when it’s needed. The sessions are tailored to cover the skills that could help the most when looking after older people – helping with heart attacks, strokes, head injuries and unresponsiveness.

Digital Support/Support Getting on Zoom
We’re all on a digital journey! Getting an email address, getting access to the internet, booking GP appointments online, all require an investment of time and an open-ness to discovering new ways of doing things. With this in mind, we’ve created a series of digital guides, specially developed to help people to get the most out of technology.
If you need help joining a group, contact us via our helpline 020 7281 3319.
