Calling Borders carers

Are you caring or helping to care for someone in your family or a friend? Are you between 18 and 25?

If you answered yes to both these questions, we have a special free week for you. The Princess Royal Trust; Borders Carers Centre is running a course, Positive Paths, on October 10-14 at Borders College.

The programme will be certificated and will include emergency first aid, team building, food hygiene and nutrition, stress management and relaxation, assertiveness and interview techniques.

Travel costs, meal costs and (if needed) respite and child care costs will be paid. For details, contact Mary Daykin at the Carers Centre 01896 752431 or e-mail
