Starting 22nd May 2024 for 10 weeks, this free course runs every Wednesday from 10.00am to 1.00pm from a central Chesterfield venue.

Any carers interested in taking the course should request their place via their care home manager. Care home managers should then contact the WEA with the names of interested participants and for further information on enrolment. Contact: [email protected] or 07500 815601.

Care to Learn is just one of a range of projects and initiatives which is being funded by Chesterfield Borough Council through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, after the council was successful in securing £2.6 million from the Government. It will fund initiatives, until 2025, which are designed to improve life for local people and support local businesses.
