Kia ora,

I’ve enjoyed being out on the road again training in South Taranaki and Whanganui.

In October I presented Legal Information for Caregivers and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. Coming up for training; online Keeping Memories and Understanding National Care Standards will be available in November and I will be presenting Identity & Belonging in December.

To register for one, or all, of our upcoming trainings, click the button below! These trainings are a great opportunity to further your skills as a caregiver and to meet other caregivers.

Caregivers who live in North Taranaki or Taumarunui, if you are interested in a training that we offer, please give me a call or call your Caregiver Social Worker and we can see what we can do to make this happen for you
