Free training opportunities

For family carers and support workers supporting adults (18 years +) through a Personal Budget or an Education, Health & Care Plan from Adult Social Care. The programme of training is delivered in conjunction with Independent Lives and is funded through Skills for Care.

Your family member with support needs can attend creative workshops at Project Art Works whilst you are taking part in training or we can cover the cost of a Personal Assistant providing support, when your Personal Assistant is undertaking training.

There are limited places available for people funded through Personal Health Budgets, or people who support someone aged under 18 – please contact Esther to check availability.

Training for family carers and support workers

Aspirational planning and facilitation for families of people with complex needs

Project Art Works is now offering intensive support for families of people with complex needs as part of the Art Freedom Care programme thanks to funding from Skills for Care, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and Three Guineas Trust.

Project Art Works will work with you to explore what your hopes and aspirations are.

This might be finding and employing support workers, and training them to support your family member, carry out clinical tasks, and work safely and effectively, so that you can have some respite.

You may wish to undertake a Deputyship so you have greater control and more say in the support and care your family member receives.

Or you want to better understand the complex health and social care structures and legal frameworks so you can choose what kind of care and support is right for you as a family. Find out more.
