Our interactive, online workshops have been designed with new carers in mind to support you in your caring role. Run by staff from our knowledgeable and experienced team at CSM in partnership with Merton Uplift, there will be plenty of opportunities to address your particular needs. Over four weeks you will learn how to navigate and manage your new caring responsibilities while also being mindful of your own needs. By the end of the course you will be equipped with the strategies, information and skills to care with confidence while also looking after yourself, including how to access counselling and other therapies available to you in Merton.


To get the most out of this series of workshops we recommend that you attend every class, and no fewer than three. We understand that your caring responsibilities will sometimes get in the way, but we encourage you to try to make time for yourself each week so that you can participate fully and gain maximum benefit.  If you do have to miss a session for any reason, we will share the slides with you after the class.
