Carers' Training

Your views on training and development which will help you in your caring role


The Carers’ Team are contacting all unpaid carers who have requested training or asked for development to help you in your caring responsibilities.  This review of training and development for unpaid carers living in the Vale of Glamorgan will enable us to ascertain if there is a demand, both for existing and new courses or for other support/development.


We would be very grateful if you could complete the questionnaire. It should only take a few minutes of your time. (English) (Welsh)


Please can you return your form by 4.30pm on 14th October 2022.


Your responses will be returned to us and will of course be confidential and will not include any names or other information.

We really appreciate the time you take to respond. Your views are very important to us, as they help us to prioritise our training and development offer for all unpaid carers.  Carers Services 






Dementia From the Inside (New Video from Social Care Institute for Excellence, SCIE)

In this film we find out what it might feel like to live with dementia. Viewers will experience a little of what it is like to find yourself in a world that seems familiar and yet doesn’t always make sense.


The incidents pictured in this film and memories recounted are based upon true experiences gathered from people living with dementia.  The film is valuable for anyone who supports people with dementia.
