QQI Level 6 Certificate in Family Caring

Family Carers Ireland has partnered with IT Carlow to deliver a new Certificate in Family Caring developed to provide family carers with the skills they need to care safely and confidently for a loved one at home.

The QQI Level 6 special purpose award helps participants develop practical care skills, design a person-centred care plan and enhance their skills in communicating effectively with other professionals to meet the needs of their family member or friend.

Three courses have been delivered in 2019 in Bray, Limerick and Newbridge with a further six scheduled for 2020 in Cork, Dublin, Clonmel, Cavan, Roscommon and Mullingar. This initiative has been funded through the Dormant Accounts Fund administered by Pobal.

Anyone looking to register their interest for the Cork course which begins on January 13th should contact Family Carers Ireland Carer Supports Manager Peter Cox on 086 172 7169 or pcox@familycarers.ie

For further information on upcoming Certificate in Family Caring courses, please contact Family Carers Ireland Innovation & Programme Manager Bernadette O’Connor on 061 310 434 or email boconnor@familycarers.ie
