Caring with Confidence

Caring with Confidence is part of the Government's 'New Deal for Carers'. In December 2007, the Department of Health awarded the contract to deliver an expert carers programme in England to a consortium of five partner organisations - Carers UK, Crossroads Caring for Carers, Expert Patients Programme Community Interest Company (EPP CIC), Partners in Policymaking and The Princess Royal Trust for Carers. EPP CIC is the lead administrative organisation

Carers over 18 years old will be able to mix and match how they take part by attending one or more free, local group sessions, and from January 2009, by using self-study packs and accessing online resources.

Visit NHS Choices for further information or to register an interest in the self- study packs and distance learning - or if you wish to express an interest in becoming a Caring with Confidence provider.
