The C.O.P.E Project (Carer Opportunities & Participation in Employment) is to support unpaid carers to access employment, education, training or volunteering opportunities. The project can also support carers who currently work. Each day this week, NEWCIS C.O.P.E Facilitators Maxine and Kelly, will be telling you about the project and providing information about online courses and partnership agencies who can support you on your journey.
