Gloucestershire County Council is offering two free courses.

Carers can book themselves on and don’t need to be referred by a social worker.

Gloucester’s sessions take place at Messenger House. On December 10 from 10am until 1pm there will be a coping with emergencies session, while on December 12 at the same time there will be a session about helping people move safely.

Councillor Andrew Gravells, cabinet member for health, said: “Carers are our unsung heroes. These new courses should help them to deal with some of their biggest concerns.”

To book a place call 01452 500885 or 426254.
