We had an enquiry on twitter today about this today and it may come up for others, so here are some options:
- Open Badges Scheme:
There are still some Open Badges which I think are available to anyone which you can find here:
- MECOPP training:
In addition, there is also an online course based on the MECOPP training, called ‘Self-Directed Support- Making the Law Work for You SDS, Human Rights and Equalities’. This might be more than an introductory course. You can find further details here:
If people are in a caring role then they might be able to access information and training through the Coalition of Carers here: https://www.carersnet.org/ or their local carers centre. In addition, certain organisations like Age Scotland run training sessions on SDS for dementia carers, details of which people can find here
- SiRD funded organisations:
Many SiRD funded organisations run information and training sessions, so it might be worth being connecting with your local organisation. Use this resource and put your postcode in.
