     Sue Funge, Curriculum Manager
at Oxford Adult Learning,
talks about the FREE ‘Carer’s Journey’ courses at Caring Matters conference, 2018.
 Getting support with ‘A Carer’s Journey’
FREE workshops to give practical and emotional support for carers and ex-carers at different stages of their caring journey
   The caring role can be extremely challenging and changeable, with often little to prepare you from any previous experience you may have had. Whether you have just become a carer, been one for several years or your caring role has ended, the ‘Carers’s Journey’ workshops are specially designed to support your caring role at the different stages of being a carer.
After extensive listening to carers, the Carer’s Journey workshops were created in a partnership between Action for Carers Oxfordshire and Oxfordshire Adult Learning (OAL).
Sue Funge, speaking (opposite) talks about Carer’s Journey courses at Caring Matters conference, 2018. Sue is the Curriculum Manager at OAL and has herself been a carer: “Being a carer can be an all­absorbing role whereby the carer is lost in their duties looking after a loved one. Carers’ go on a special journey that deserves support and time out to try and maintain some level of wellbeing whilst fulfilling this demanding role’’.
