There are lots of people living in Surrey who need help with their care, older people living in nursing homes, people who have come out of hospital, people with disabilities or long term illnesses are just some examples.
But there aren’t enough care workers to help them so more people are needed.
The Community Skills for Care programme is a free training programme that is specially designed to help people who may need care and support themselves to develop the skills they need to become great care workers.
What is involved?
A two day introduction into the world of Health and Social Care
Then if you think that working in a caring role is for you can go on to do a further training that will give you a level 1 qualification to work in social care.
One to one support will be available to help you find work experience placements and to find a suitable paid role.
Your travel expenses will be paid to attend the course.
If after doing the introductory two days you decide you don’t want to do the qualification you can still stay involved. We also need volunteer helpers to support people who need health and social care to become more active in their community. Full training for this role will be given.
