  • Working Families charity
  • Autism Bedfordshire

Plus, from The Disability Resource Centre, free training for carers in Luton including Money Matters course that helps carers with their financial wellbeing and the Wellbeing Matters course which aims to improve your physical and mental wellbeing.

The newsletter also promoted the Care Academy, which is a popular place for unpaid carers and PAs to study vital care skills.
