Carers in Buckinghamshire are now able to access virtual workshops in the new year.

Following the success of the seminars throughout 2021 the Oxford Health Carer Assessment team in Buckinghamshire are offering a further four online workshops under the theme of ‘Living Together.’.

Julie Dale, Associate Head of Social Care, said: “We are pleased to present the New Year Online Carers Workshops for mental health carers who support patients under the community mental health teams in Buckinghamshire.

“The next set of courses are highly recommended for starting the new year with a clear focus, coping strategies and a positive outlet. This is an opportunity for carers, family and friends to meet others in similar circumstances and gain information and insight in how to cope with their caring role which in turn helps the recovery of their loved ones.”
