Workshops


Hft’s Family Carer Support Service (FCSS) has been delivering workshops to family carers for over 18 years. We do this to ensure that family carers have the information they need to get the right support for their relative with a learning disability.

We offer workshops in supportive and welcoming settings where you’ll get to meet and talk about key issues with other family carers.

We are currently running workshops on:

  • The Care Act
  • The Mental Capacity Act
  • Preparing for Adulthood
