The Learning Exchange
Shared Care Scotland is a charity that works to see a Scotland where everyone who receives or provides unpaid care can live happy and fulfilled lives with the support they need to take regular, quality breaks from the demands of their caring situations.
As part of that we organise learning exchanges that are funded by the Short Breaks Fund in order to provide opportunities for the organisations in receipt of grant funding to share learning and good practice, and to inspire new ways of delivering and measuring successful short breaks.
Please note that these Learning Exchange events are for funded projects and priority will therefore be given to staff from projects that are currently being funded via the Short Breaks Fund. If there is additional space we may open courses/events to other people.
The following events are taking place:
