Implementing the Carers (Equal Opportunities) Act 2004

Listening to carers DVD

Carers' experiences of carers' assessments.

The key to a life outside caring.

In partnership with Carers UK and SCIE the four Supporting Carers Beacons (Hertfordshire, Rochdale, Sefton and Sunderland) have made a DVD to support the training of front-line staff in carrying out effective carers' assessments. Trainers, managers and front-line staff had all identified a need for a video-based tool to support training. While the best option is always to involve carers as trainers, the reality is that this may not always be possible, and this DVD ensures the carers' voice is powerfully heard.
