Workshops available for young adult carers - October

The Grants Team at Carers Trust have been working with several corporations to set up workshops on education, employability or financial skills for groups of young and young adult carers. Several corporate partners are looking forward to making a contribution by sharing their knowledge, experience and skills on financial, employability and life skills.

There are still some places on one of the workshops we offered last month. Details of subjects to be covered within the workshop can be found below.

British Airways Workshop – open to young carers aged 14-25 (20 places still available!)

Date: 16 October 2014, 10am-2.30pm
