Hope training programme for carers

9th February 21

Would you like to cope better and feel more in control?

At Caring Together, we have partnered with Hope For The Community CIC on running an online course, the Hope Programme, to support carers in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk, starting 22 February 2021.

The Hope Programme is a free six-week group self-management programme for carers to help you cope with life during and after lockdown – to help you feel more in control and more resilient.

The course was co-created with carers and researchers at Coventry University.

Each week it covers topics like:

  • managing stress
  • smarter goal setting
  • gratitude
  • character strengths
  • physical activity
  • eating well
  • coping with fatigue
  • practicing mindfulness
  • communication and relationships.

The course includes quizzes, worksheets, audio and video materials, interactive activities and social networking via email and forums. It will help you to develop your skills and techniques in areas such as mindfulness, goal setting, anxiety, fatigue and stress management, healthy eating, physical activity and working with health care team.

The course can be accessed from PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone. Carers will have access to the course 24/7. It takes about two hours to go through the materials each week, but they can do this at their own pace and at a time that suits.

The group has some live sessions, including live mindfulness meditation sessions supported by facilitators. To register your interest, you can email [email protected] or call 0345 241 0954
