New Outreach and Training Facilitation Service—Mayo
The Carers Association is delighted to announce the commencement of a new Outreach and Training facilitation Service in Co. Mayo. This is a 2 year project, sponsored by Baxter International Foundation. Our new Training and Outreach facilitator is Eileen McNamara.
The objectives of this service are to identify the needs of Family Carers and Young Carers in Mayo and raise awareness of the work Family Carers carry out. The new service will provide quality accredited Home Care Skills training and other training courses to family Carers.
Information sessions will be held throughout the county and support groups will be established. The new service will enable Mayo’s Family Carers establish a voice on a national level through membership of The Carers Association.
