As part of the Surrey’s efforts to support those who are looking after vulnerable people at home during the Covid-19 pandemic, a series of FREE 45 minute webinars are being delivered to carers. The sessions will help unpaid carers understand the steps they need to take to help in creating a ‘Safer Environment’ during the pandemic, with the aim of reducing infection rates. A team of clinical tutors will be delivering these training sessions giving unpaid carers the chance to not only access the awareness sessions but to also ask any questions pertinent to their caring role.
