What is a Carrying Consultancy?

A carrying consultancy is a project run by one or more carrying consultants to offer education about the use of slings and carriers. Often these are run as businesses and also sell slings and carriers.

A bit more about Ways to Carry

Ways to Carry is run as a very small educational project by Kate Jack in her ‘spare’ time (alongside her family and work commitments). We do not retail slings and carriers. Our availability is unpredictable (as is standard with family life). We keep our prices affordable, which means we hopefully make enough money through the year to meet our insurance, training and running costs. We do this because it brings us joy, emotional not financial wealth.

A bit more about Kate

Kate first used a sling in 1998; it was a ring sling given to her by a friend who said she “needed” to have one. That friend was absolutely right!

Over the years she has used every type of sling or carrier you have ever heard of (and some you definitely haven’t), and attended training run by Slingababy, Born to Carry, L’ecole-a-porter and Trageschule Dresden

She’s supported a diverse range of children and carers with many and varied physical, emotional and educational needs, and loved every minute of it !
