One of the most important things we do at Unique Ways is to offer training courses for parent carers, helping you to build your skills and resilience, learn techniques and tactics for dealing with schools, health services and Local Authorities, and develop a person-centred method of dealing with your child’s additional needs.

Courses are free for Unique Ways members, and are led by our own fully trained and qualified practitioners. Most of our team are also parent carers themselves, so you can be sure that our courses are being led by someone who knows what you’re going through, and really is there to help.

Our courses and workshops








Unique Ways is a small charity and our programme of Training Courses which we
provide free of charge to Parent Carers have a significant cost to us. To secure a
place you will be required to pay a £5.00 refundable deposit for all of
our training courses when booking, and a £2.00 refundable deposit for all of our
workshops. Upon completion of the course, this will be refunded to you in full upon
request. Any retained fees will contribute to deposit and refund processing and
administration costs.
All our Training Courses need a minimum of 12 Parent Carers to go ahead.
Refreshments and biscuits will be provided.
Booking links open 8 weeks prior to start date.
Unfortunately, we have experienced a high volume of Parent Carers signing up for
our courses and then not attending. We understand that there will be genuine
reasons why you cannot attend a course, or all sessions of a course,
you signed up for, but we ask that you please advise us in advance if possible as a
courtesy to other parent carers who are on the waiting list, otherwise, you are
preventing other Parent Carers getting on the course.
Refunds are available up to 7 days before the beginning of the course. Refunds
within 7 days will be at Unique Ways discretion.
By cancelling your place and receiving your refund, you will open up a place for
another Parent Carer.
