Our 2019 three day courses are free; including food and accommodation. As a charity we do not make a profit. We are fortunate to have reserves from the sale of the assets of our previous charity (we used to own care homes) to invest in the development and start-up costs of our new services. It costs the charity £650 per carer to deliver the course, including food and accommodation. Therefore, we invite course participants to donate to the charity on completion of the course, if they are able to. All donations, big or small, make such a difference.

Donation forms will be provided at our courses. You can also donate using the donate button at the top right corner of this web page.

From January 2020, there will be a nominal charge of £250 per attendee to cover accommodation and meals and contribute to the course costs to enable our services to be sustainable going forwards. From July 2020 this will increase to £350 per attendee. We will also be offering the option to pay in £50 instalments by Direct Debit – please let us know if you would prefer to use this method – it will be available very soon.

Our courses should be accessible to all, if you are unable to pay this contribution and would like to know more about bursary options please contact us by phone or email, or take a look at our page about other ways of funding your place.

To reserve your place please book on to your preferred course using this website, or contact our team to discuss your options  by telephone on 020 3096 7895 or email us  support@dementiacarers.org.uk

 

Our courses are constantly developing, and we are committed to providing support for specific communities. We will be releasing dates for upcoming courses tailored to different groups, but please get in touch if you would like to talk to us about your particular needs and how we might be able to help.
