In light of COVID-19, and to ensure we do everything possible to continue to protect those who attend our courses and our team of professionals, we have taken the decision to cancel some of our courses.

 

If you would like to attend one of our three-day courses in the future, register your interest on our waiting list below.

 

During lockdown we had to cancel a number of our events. We are now in the process of accommodating carers affected by these cancellations and re-booking places on upcoming courses with reduced group sizes in line with social distancing regulations. We hope to complete this by the end of July and will be in touch with you in due course to confirm if there is availability on your preferred date. We look forward to welcoming you on a course soon.

To speak with a member of the team, email support@dementiacarers.org.uk or call us on 020 3096 7895.

Waiting list

 

As a charity we do not make a profit. It costs the charity £650 per person to deliver our three-day course, including food and accommodation. We do not want anyone to be excluded from our services so we are not charging a fee for our courses. Therefore, we invite course participants (or their employers) to donate to the charity on completion of the course, if they are able to. A donation of £5 pays for a coffee break for a carer, £15 pays for a carer’s lunch and £300 pays for an expert course facilitator for a day. 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.

 

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.
