      Devon Digital Carers have created a free bite-sized course called Take 20 to help develop your skills as a carer and support you in your important role.
      Each of the 20 modules takes approximately 20 minutes; so, it’s perfect for a short break from your day-to-day activities. 
      The course offers you the opportunity to gain more in-depth knowledge on a range of issues you may come across in your role as a carer.
