A Cornwall-based Community Interest Company which specialises in free courses for unpaid carers, has successfully rolled out its online training to over 20 regions across the UK.
Promas Online was established in November 2018, and since then has had licenses taken up by authorities and organisations across the country, from Bristol to Blackpool.
The venture offers online training and support to help unpaid carers deal with the challenges they face.
Bernie DeLord, director and co-founder or Promas CIC, said: “Our courses can change carers lives. Whether its managing stress, finding coping strategies, understanding dementia, caring for yourself or caring for someone with mental ill health to name but a few.
“Our award-winning courses have been so successful in Cornwall and Plymouth that we are now offering them online to ensure that all carers can access the training, regardless of where they live or the physical and time limits that their caring role might place upon them.”
As well as the online courses, Promas CIC has also launched a new helpline and advice service for unpaid carers in Cornwall. Between 10am-4pm weekdays, it is manning the phones to talk and help carers with any challenges or issues they are facing.
