Adult Carers in the Community – Third Workforce First Level and Certified Trainers

A group of people across the generations

Hello and welcome to your Adult Carers in the Community (ACC) and ACC Certified Trainers programme. These programmes are designed with and for ACC, who are identified as informal unpaid carers, and who provide care outside of any employment (including voluntary) setting to family members, neighbours and friends. Your programmes encompass core components of wellbeing, resilience and co-production. During the programmes you will become known as the ‘Third Workforce’, a workforce of over 6 million strong that sits between health and social care.

Your programmes have been developed from substantial empirical research, and are proven to sustainably improve mental wellbeing.

Your ACC Programme is delivered in four face to face sessions, and is brought direct to you in the community setting. Your ACC Certified Trainers programme is competency based and is accrued through 45 hours CPD through a blended learning format; this means that you will learn about resilience and wellbeing on line and at face-to-face learning sessions. Both programmes align withbroader legislative and policy requirements pertaining to wellbeing.

Your programmes are highly practical and ensure that you achieve tangible, measurable outcomes that contribute to carer wellbeing and resilience. For further information on this programme, and how to enrol pplease contact us.
